How OSHA’s New Heat Hazard Program Affects Organizations

In response to rising temperatures and concern for vulnerable workers, OSHA recently implemented a National Emphasis Program (NEP) to protect employees from heat-related hazards and illnesses in the workplace. Understandably, many organizations have questions about how they will be impacted by the program and how to comply with the new guidance. 

Courtney Malveaux, Co-Leader of the Workplace Safety and Health Practice Group at Jackson Lewis, is the featured guest for the second episode of our two-part series on extreme heat. Courtney is a former labor commissioner and currently represents employers in regulatory issues and OSHA citations, so we invited him to the show to break down everything you need to know about OSHA’s new NEP.

Courtney explains:

  • Why the NEP includes protections for both indoor and outdoor workers
  • How to develop heat safety plans that comply with OSHA’s guidance
  • Tips on what to expect from an OSHA visit
  • The surprising industries and workplace environments under new heat safety scrutiny
  • Why proactive relationship building with OSHA can build trust and communication

The Employee Safety Podcast is hosted by Peter Steinfeld, SVP of Safety Solutions at AlertMedia.
