FOR HEAT ILLNESS
Employer Name: ___________________________________________________________________
Contact Person(s)/Program Administrator: _______________________________________________
California Employers with any outdoor places of employment must comply with the Heat Illness
Prevention Standard T8 CCR 3395. These procedures have been created to assist the employer in
crafting their heat illness prevention procedures, and to reduce the risk of work related heat illnesses
among their employees.
These procedures are not intended to supersede or replace the application of any other Title 8
regulation, particularly T8 3203 Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP). Title 8 CCR 3203
requires an employer to establish, implement, and maintain an effective IIPP. The measures listed
here may be integrated into the Employer’s Injury and Illness Prevention Program.
The employer must also be aware that other standards apply to Heat Illness Prevention such as the
requirement to provide for drinking water, fi rst aid and emergency response.
To effectively establish your company procedures, carefully review the key elements listed on this
document, as well as the examples provided, then select and fi ll out the procedures applicable to your
workplace. Please use additional paper when necessary. Next, implement and train employees and
supervisors on your company procedures.
Please note: These procedures provide the minimal steps applicable to most outdoor work settings
and are essential to reducing the incidence of heat related illnesses. In working environments with
a higher risk for heat illness (e.g., during a heat wave, or other severe working or environmental
conditions), it is the employer’s duty to exercise greater caution and additional protective measures
beyond what is listed in this document, as needed to protect their employees.
