Restaurant Workers Need Extreme Heat Protections

Currently the Maryland Occupational Safety And Health (MOSH) is seeking public comments to create a statewide policy regarding extreme heat in the workplace. Whether you’ve worked in a crammed restaurant kitchen with busted hoods or endured a double shift out on the patio on a hot summer day, you know how unbearable extreme heat can be. This process is a rare opportunity to tangibly improve the working conditions for anyone working in the restaurant industry.

The most effective way to help out is to share your experience of enduring extreme temperatures while working in the restaurant industry. MOSH wants to understand how workers are impacted by extreme heat so that they can draft the most comprehensive policy.
