This course is designed for any employee that may be exposed to conditions of excessive heat. The course reviews the causes of heat illness, the symptoms, and effects of heat illness, how to minimize and treat heat illness on the job, and how to recognize and treat the more dangerous outcome of heat overexposure (heat stroke).
Cal OSHA’s 3395 standard is covered in depth
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not specifically require employers to provide heat illness prevention training. However, three states — Washington, Minnesota and California — have created their own laws governing occupational heat exposure. In California, Title 8 CCR 3395(h) requires employers to provide heat illness prevention training for both supervisory and non-supervisory employees who work outdoors. Our course satisfies this regulatory requirement.
The General Duty Clause of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 requires all employers to provide a workplace free from serious recognized hazards, including hazards related to heat exposure. Heat illness prevention certification can help minimize the risk to workers and keep your company in compliance with this clause.
