|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, landscapers, day laborers, and other at-risk workers. The regulation should outline standards for access to water and shade, breaks, training, and air-conditioning in employer provided housing. You and I wouldn’t subject ourselves to the dangers of heat illness, and others shouldn’t have to either. Heat illness kills thousands of people each year. Please take action to enact proven measures to protect vulnerable workers. Thank you.
