OSHA strengthens worker protections in confined spaces

California employers of construction workers exposed to confined spaces have to meet extra safety standards issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Subpart AA of 29 CFR 1926 of the updated OSHA regulations establishes that employers must identify confined spaces at work sites and assess their hazards. Workers must also receive safety training specific to the confined spaces and learn how to rescue workers if an accident happens.

California lawmakers act to protect outdoor workers

While the sunny weather that California is known for is often cited as a reason for visiting the state, high temperatures can be hazardous to workers who perform many or all of their duties outdoors. OSHA has no specific standard for illnesses caused by heat, but California has made protecting outdoor workers a top legislative priority. OSHA data shows that more than 30 workers lost their lives in 2012 due to heat exposure, and thousands of others suffered an illness or injury.
