OSHA Releases First-Ever Federal Heat Safety Rule — Keeping You in the Know

In an effort to further safeguard workers from heat-related illnesses and fatalities, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed the nation’s first-ever federal heat safety rule yesterday. The ruling could soon require employers that conduct indoor and outdoor work activities across industry sectors to enact robust measures to protect their employees from the hazards of extreme heat conditions.

Our advisory board member Ed Foulke, Former Head of OSHA and Partner at Fisher Phillips, and his team have crafted a guide to help employers better understand the proposed heat safety rule.
