Using a panic button – California’s heat-related illness regulations

In California, they have some pretty strict laws about keeping employees safe and making sure they can ask for help in emergencies.

It’s about making sure that workers have the support they need and that their well-being is a top priority.

California’s regulations for preventing heat-related illness in outdoor workers

According to California Cal/OSHA, employers in industries like agriculture, construction, landscaping, oil and gas extraction, and transportation or delivery of agricultural products are required to have ‘effective emergency response procedures including ensuring that effective communication by voice, observation, or electronic means is maintained so that employees at the work site can contact a supervisor or emergency medical services when necessary.’ These procedures ensure that workers can easily reach a supervisor or emergency services when needed.
