What Dealers Need to Know about OSHA’s New Heat Illness Rules


KPA’s compliance consultant and Team Supervisor, Jason Fritz, CSP, recently penned an article for Wards Auto about what automotive workplaces and dealers need to know about OSHA’s National Emphasis Program – Outdoor and Indoor Heat-Related Hazards.

The National Emphasis Program gives OSHA the ability to inspect workplaces when the heat index is over 80 degrees so Fritz outlines what to expect during an inspection and how to prevent heat illness. With a federal standard coming soon, Fritz advises dealerships and service centers that while the NEP isn’t legally required, a federal standard isn’t far behind and organizations will need to comply soon.
