It's Going to Be a Hot Summer—Be OSHA Construction Worksite Prepared!

We know construction work site summer temperatures can be well over a 100 degrees. Certain trades like roofers, asphalt/concrete crews face extreme high summer temperatures during their work days. OSHA, as of April 8, 2022, launched a National Emphasis Program (NEP) focusing on heat-related illnesses and injuries in both indoor and outdoor worksites. Failure to proactively take steps to protect employees from heat related hazards can lead to fines and worker heat illnesses. Construction work is among those industries that are specifically targeted. This NEP gives OSHA another reason to stop at your worksites to see if you are in compliance—and also then to discover any other potential violations. This Michael Best Construction College webinar will be presented by Roy Wagner, Leader of Construction Law and Bethany McCurdy, Employment, OSHA and Workplace Safety Practice Team and will discuss:

  • What are the new heat rules?
  • How do I protect my employees?
  • What practices to avoid?
  • What are the enforcement issues?
  • Do I need a program to address heat related risks?
