Regulating Heat Stress: A Rising Focus for the US Department of Labor and OSHA
As the global climate shifts, heat stress is coming into focus as a significant workplace hazard. Recently, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have been increasingly spotlighting the issue, signaling that regulatory pressures are catching up with the rising temperatures.
A Rising Tide of Regulation
Both the DOL and OSHA have recognized the risks of heat stress and have taken significant steps towards making workplaces safer. As part of their ongoing efforts, these agencies are intensifying their emphasis on protecting workers from the dangers of heat exposure. With a range of guidelines and recommendations in place, the push for better heat stress management in workplaces is gathering steam.
This focus by the DOL and OSHA underscores the growing awareness of heat stress as a workplace risk. More importantly, it underscores the need for organizations to act fast. Businesses are no longer at liberty to overlook this hazard. Regulatory scrutiny is increasing, and with it, the imperative for organizations to act.
