Washington — OSHA has scheduled a virtual stakeholder meeting on the agency’s efforts to protect workers from heat-related hazards.

In October, OSHA published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking for a standard on heat injury and illness prevention in outdoor and indoor work settings.

According to a noticed published in the April 6 Federal Register, the meeting will feature an overview of OSHA’s ongoing activities, as well as an introduction of the agency’s rulemaking process and ways for the public to participate in that process. Additionally, stakeholders can make comments and ask questions related to the ANPRM. The event is set for noon Eastern on May 3 and will take place via Zoom.


Registration is required. Anyone seeking to comment or ask questions must indicate so when registering.

“Although OSHA welcomes all comments and seeks to accommodate many speakers at the meeting, it may not be possible to accommodate all stakeholder requests to speak at the meeting,” the notice states. “The order of speakers will be determined based on affiliation and will be confirmed with speakers prior to the event.”
