Public Comment Requested: OSHA Heat Injury and Illness Prevention Rule 9 November 2021

Public Comment Requested: OSHA Heat Injury and Illness Prevention Rule

The public comment period closes on January 26th, 2022.

OSHA is interested in obtaining information about hazardous heat in the workplace, interventions and controls used to prevent heat illness, and diverse perspectives and expertise on topics including heat stress thresholds, heat acclimatization planning, and exposure monitoring. Recommendations should account for indoor and outdoor work environments and businesses of all different sizes.

Open Survey to Influence NASA Satellite Mission 6 October 2021

Open Survey to Influence NASA Satellite Mission

Urban Heat observations are planned

NASA JPL, in coordination with RTI International, is undertaking a study to inform the applications, information access, and product development of a next generation, global mission, called Surface Biology and Geology (SBG). SBG is envisioned to capture data in the VSWIR (hyperspectral) and TIR (multispectral, 5 bands 8-12um, 1 band in Mid IR).

If you are passionate about addressing the threat of urban heat, then NASA wants to hear from you how SBG can support your work! Participation in the study has been extended to October 22nd.

About Us

NIHHIS is an integrated information system that builds understanding of the problem of extreme heat, defines demand for climate services that enhance societal resilience, develops science-based products and services from a sustained climate science research program, and improves capacity, communication, and societal understanding of the problem in order to reduce morbidity and mortality due to extreme heat.  NIHHIS is a jointly developed system by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
