28novAll DayCall on FL lawmakers to pass heat stress protections

Event Details

On Day 9 of Food Workers Rising, we invite you to join Florida farmworkers calling on their lawmakers to pass common sense heat stress protections for outdoor workers. 

When farmworkers cannot stop to drink water, they risk severe, even debilitating, dehydration. When they cannot rest or find shade, they may experience heat stress, heat stroke, and even death, and excessive heat exposure can lead to chronic dehydration and long-term kidney failure. Rising temperatures are projected to cause an increase in heat-related workplace injuries and illness. Simple solutions like access to water, shade, and breaks throughout the workday can be life-saving measures for outdoor workers.​

No one should have to risk their health – and even their life – working to feed our communities.

Join Farmworker Association of Florida and farmworkers across the state in calling on lawmakers to pass common sense heat stress protections for workers whose health is at risk from working in high heat environments.
