Cardno ChemRisk webinar explores best practices and possible future California regulation around indoor heat stress

On Tuesday, March 17 Justine Parker, CIH, CSP, CHMM, CPH and Joel Cohen, MPH, CIH, FAIHA will present a webinar titled “Indoor Heat Stress: Current Best Practices and Possible Future California Regulation,” during which they will discuss the anticipation that California will be the first state to adopt a regulation on indoor heat stress in the workplace.

This will require employers in California to create or update heat stress/illness prevention programs. This webinar will discuss the history of the proposed future California Indoor Heat Illness regulation and the industries likely to be most affected. The webinar will also cover strategies for management of indoor heat sources and recommendations for compliance and best practices.
