|NOIRA on Heat Illness Prevention
|Ended on 6/9/2021
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.
Please always remember that it was not the wealthy people that kept our country running during the pandemic, it was those essential workers like construction, water, gas and farmers that kept us going. They deserve adequate support to continue their jobs.
