|NOIRA on Heat Illness Prevention
|Ended on 6/9/2021
I am grateful to know that you created the emergency COVID-19 standard. I would also be very grateful if you were to 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. If professional soccer games can build in water breaks for athletes during especially hot weather, surely the state government can mandate that employers take such sensible measures to prevent illness--and even death--from elevated temperatures.
