Employee Locations – California’s heat-related illness regulations

According to Section 3395 of Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations, it’s required that employees have a way to stay in regular communication with their employers.

A Means of Regular Communication

If you’re working outside in fields like agriculture, construction, landscaping, oil and gas extraction, or transportation and delivery of agricultural products, California Cal/OSHA requires employers to have “regular communication” with any sole employee. This could be through means like a radio, cellular phone, or other effective methods of observation. It’s all about making sure there’s a way for the employee and the employer to stay connected. Having an employee safety monitoring system that allows workers to contact employers AND gives their precise location ticks all the boxes.
