Public Comment Requested: OSHA Heat Injury and Illness Prevention Rule

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

On October 27th, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for Heat Injury and Illness Prevention in Outdoor and Indoor Work Settings. 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.

OSHA is encouraging members of the public, especially affected workers and stakeholders, to review and submit feedback during the 60-day comment period. The public comment period closes on January 26th, 2022. Please share this notice with any interested stakeholders.

Stakeholders can learn more about how to participate here and can read the ANPRM and submit a comment here or here.

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.
