Advocates Call on OSHA: Protect Workers From Heat 🌡️:


A broad coalition of worker advocacy, public health, and environmental groups yesterday called on the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration to create a workplace standard for heat stress.

Over 130 groups led by Farmworker Justice, United Farm Workers, and Public Citizen signed a petition sent to OSHA noting that two in every 1,000 American workers are now subject to heat stress, and calling on the agency to mandate that employers provide adequate hydration and shade, medical attention and rest breaks during high heat events.

The Obama administration denied a previous petition for a heat stress standard from the coalition in 2012. "I don’t want any more families to go through the pain that my family went through," Californian Raudel Felix García, whose brother died while working his job at a vineyard during triple-digit temperatures, told reporters on a press call.
