19novAll DayBeat The Heat: Tell OSHA to Address Extreme Heat in Restaurant Kitchens!

Event Details

For the first time, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is seeking sorely-needed standardized heat protections for workers, including those in restaurant kitchens. On October 27, they announced the newly proposed “Heat Injury and Illness Prevention in Outdoor and Indoor Work Settings” rule, and now they are accepting public comments to help shape the finalized version.

We need to urge OSHA to finally take action to curb excessive heat in workplaces like restaurant kitchens, where temperatures can become unbearable and unsafe, as well as on farms, where workers are constantly exposed to extreme climate conditions.

Support food workers by taking action with our member @ROCUntied and submitting a comment to OSHA to demand that extreme heat conditions are addressed. Sample comment and submission form available here:
