Why do I need heat and cold stress training?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) doesn’t have a specific standard for Heat and Cold Stress training. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”
Because of this requirement, your employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with Heat and Cold Stress. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.
