Regulation on Heat Illness

The following message was developed by VICPP and having lived on a farm, and understanding the physical burden of farm labor I totally agree with the need for regulation and work standards

Thank you for your consideration  Sheila Kryston

Thank you for your leadership on creating the emergency COVID-19 standard. Please develop strong standards/regulations for addressing heat illness to protect farmworkers and other at-risk workers. The regulation should outline standards for access to water, breaks, training and air-conditioning in employer provided housing.
