protection of workers from heat distress and illnes

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 provided by the employer.

P.S.Years ago I worker in California with the United Farm Workers.  At 5 a,m, it  was allready so hot I could scarcely breathe.
