|Ended on 6/9/2021
Heat stress regulations are very important to the health of any workers exposed to a high heat environment. My experience in the Navy taught me how important heat stress management is to taking care of your people.
Thank you for your leadership on creating the emergency COVID-19 standard. Please develop strong standards / regulations for addressing heat illness to protect farm workers and other at-risk workers. The regulation should outline standards for access to water, breaks, training and air conditioning in employer provided housing. We also need serious penalties for employers who violate these standards.
