Cal/OSHA General Industry Safety Order (GISO) 3395, “California’s Heat Illness Prevention Standard”
Background: April 2013 marked the beginning of Cal/OSHA’s annual Heat Illness Prevention Campaign. With this campaign, Cal/OSHA takes a multi-faceted approach to protecting California’s outdoor workers from heat illness that includes a combination of education, outreach and enforcement efforts (taken from http://www.99calor.org/campaign).
To be covered:
* Employer responsibilities: Water, Shade, Acclimatization, Training, Emergency Heat Plan
* Employee training requirements
* Supervisor training requirements
* High-heat Procedures
* Evaluation of company-specific written Heat Illness Prevention Program (attendees are encouraged to bring written Heat Illness plan for in-class use and evaluation)
California’s Heat Illness Prevention Standard (GISO 3395) requires that employers:
Provide plenty of cool, fresh water.
Provide a shaded area for workers to cool down.
Give workers a period of time to get used to the heat, especially during a heat wave or for new workers. This is known as "acclimatization.
"Train workers about heat illness and how to prevent it.Prepare an emergency heat plan and train workers on steps to take if someone gets sick.
