OSHA Heat Regulations
THE HEAT IS ON!
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced a National Emphasis Program (NEP) focused on heat hazards, effective April 8, 2022. Under the NEP, OSHA will be conducting proactive inspections for heat-related hazards — in both outdoor and indoor work environments. Employers are encouraged to ensure they have implemented appropriate safety measures to protect employees from such hazards, as OSHA will choose inspection sites at random on high heat days to make sure you are compliant.
The NEP marks the most recent in a series of OSHA efforts to address heat hazards in the workplace. In the fall of 2021, OSHA announced a National Enforcement Initiative and published an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, which is the first step on the long path to a federal heat standard.
