OR OHSA Issues Two New Rules Regarding Heat, Wildfire Smoke

(Salem, OR)  --  Oregon OHSA is adopting two new temporary rules regarding wildfire smoke and heat.  The wildfire smoke rule requires an employer to take action to protect workers who are outside when the Air Quality Index goes above 101.  The heat rule applies to employer-provided housing.   If the indoor temperature is above 78 degrees, then the employer needs to provide areas where employees can cool off.
