GUIDANCE FOR NEVADAN BUSINESSES RELATED TO THE HEAT ILLNESS NATIONAL EMPHASIS PROGRAM
On April 12, 2022, Federal OSHA announced the launch of a National Emphasis Program (NEP) to protect millions of workers from heat illness and injuries. Nevada OSHA is adopting the NEP in a modified form to reflect local factors. It will be effective on June 15, 2022, to give businesses time to prepare. Nevada OSHA will proactively initiate inspections in over 70 high-risk industries prescribed by Federal OSHA and additional industries identified by Nevada OSHA.
SCATS can review and make recommendations on best practices and implementation of an employer’s heat illness protocols. If your business has questions or needs onsite training or consultation, please call 877-472- 3368 or submit a consultation request at https://www.4safenv.state.nv.us/contact/.
