California's obligations to avoid injuries from heat exposure

The weather may seem like it is cooling down in California but for those working outdoors, the weather continues to pose a health risk. When workers, such as those in construction jobs, spend an elongated time outdoors and exposed to the sun, they run the risk of contracting sun stroke or other dangerous conditions. Recognizing the risk, California lawmakers have placed obligations on employers, forcing them to take steps to reduce the risk and avoid occupational illness.

What is the link between chronic injury and workplace injuries?

Feeling pain is inevitable-something as small as a paper cut or something as serious as a muscle sprain can cause pain in a California resident's life. Generally, we expect the injury to resolve itself and once one is healed, for the pain to subside. However, this is not always the case. In some instances, the pain continues for months and even years.

What does work-related mean?

California residents, like their counterparts in the rest of the country, pride themselves on their work. They work hard and dedicatedly, spending more time working than they do at home, which is probably why they expect to be taken care of if they are injured in a workplace accident.
