|NOIRA on Heat Illness Prevention
|Ended on 6/9/2021
Workers who work outside or in non-airconditioned areas, should be better protected from heat stress. There are many reasons, including health issues, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and other health issues, that can be further complicated by heat stress and visa versa. There are many regulations for safety reasons for other types of workers. There is no good reason to not have safety regulations for heat stress. Please protect our workers by setting up a standard of safety to protect our fellow Virginians from heat stress.
