California Outdoor Heat Stress
Revised in May 2015, the new Heat Illness Prevention Standard, under Title 8, California Code of Regulations, Section 3395, originally adopted on June 15, 2005, requires all employers with outdoor work sites to train their employees on how to prevent heat illness, including taking mandatory breaks called "Recovery Periods" for workers working outdoors in temperatures exceeding 80 degrees.
It is mandatory to train both employers and employees that are engaged in outdoor activities conducted in hot weather about the seriousness and prevention of Heat Illness, which includes Heat Exhaustion, Heat Stroke, and even death.
All in One Posters created this poster to supplement the Cal/OSHA standard training requirement, the employer's Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), and as a quick reference guide. Displaying posters is a sign of your commitment to safety.
