UC Davis Departments with any outdoor places of employment must adhere to the Cal/OSHA Heat Illness Prevention Standard, Title 8 California Code of Regulations Section 3395.  This Standard outlines four steps to prevent heat illness:

  1. Planning: Develop and implement written procedures for complying with the Cal/OSHA Heat Illness Prevention Standard.

  2. Training: Train all employees and supervisors about heat illness prevention.

  3. Water: Provide enough fresh water so that each employee can drink at least 1 quart per hour, and encourage them to do so.

  4. Shade: Provide access to a shaded area to prevent or recover from heat illness and where employees can take rest breaks.

Heat illness training is required annually for supervisors and employees routinely exposed to higher temperatures.  This e-course complies with the training element of the Heat Illness Prevention Standard. 

Course duration estimate:

40 minutes

Course required for all supervisors and employees working at outdoor locations.
