Protecting Workers from Heat Stress in a Warming Climate

Organization: Public Citizen

Year: 2018

Public Citizen, the United Farm Workers Foundation, Farmworker Justice and a diverse national network, launched a campaign in July 2018 to win worker protections from heat stress through national, state, and local advocacy. They are raising awareness around climate change’s impacts on the health and safety of workers, as well as other vulnerable populations, and advancing standards to prevent injuries and deaths from heat stress outdoors and indoors.
