Price: $30 USD

Question description

OSHA does not have a regulatory standard for heat stress. Recently, OSHA initiated a new outreach using a heat index instead of the historical WBGT measurements (see http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/heatillness/heat_index/index.html).  Is this a better way to evaluate and protect against heat stress?  Should OSHA have a regulation instead of an educational outreach?  Why or why not? 

150 word minimum response required. APA format, include reference and Plagiarism Free!!!!
