Heat Illness safety precautions for outdoor workers

I am concerned about the effects of rising temperatures on the health of Virginians. The risk of heat illness is particularly high for those working in extreme heat. I support the development of strong standards for heat illness as a method to protect the health of outdoor workers by requiring access to water, breaks in cool areas and training of workers and supervisors in recognizing and treating heat illness.
