“It is important for employers to check forecasts and monitor the temperatures to prepare for periods of high heat,” said Cal/OSHA Chief Juliann Sum in a statement, reported by EHS Today. “That information should be used to closely observe workers for possible heat stress and modify their work schedules as needed.”
