WHAT IS HAPPENING

On October 27, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced a newly proposed rule, known as the “Heat Injury and Illness Prevention in Outdoor and Indoor Work Settings” rule, intended to protect indoor and outdoor workers from hazardous heat. This is the first time OSHA has sought standardized heat protections for restaurant kitchens.
