Heat Stress Prevention - DOSH Guide

California employers are required to take these four steps to prevent heat illness

  1. Training - Train all employees and supervisors about heat illness prevention.
  2. Water - Provide enough fresh water so that each employee can drink at least 1 quart per hour, and encourage them to do so.
  3. Shade - Provide access to shade for at least 5 minutes of rest when an employee believes he or she needs a preventative recovery period. They should not wait until they feel sick to do so.
  4. Planning - Develop and implement written procedures for complying with the Cal/OSHA Heat Illness Prevention Standard.
