The California Chamber of Commerce is a founding member of the HIP Network, which is administered by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) in the state Department of Industrial Relations (DIR).
The HIP Network is a voluntary public/private partnership established to increase both employers’ and employees’ awareness of the hazard of heat illness and the importance of heat illness prevention measures to prevent fatalities and serious illnesses in California workplaces. HIP Network members work together to help prevent heat illness in workplaces throughout California in partnership with the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) by providing timely information to employers and employees.
Members of the Heat Illness Prevention Network join together with other private organizations and Cal/OSHA to put vital information in the hands of California’s employees to help prevent heat illness.
CalChamber members can get ready for summer by using the Heat Illness Prevention Plan – Outdoor Employees and Heat Illness Prevention Plan – Outdoor Employees – Spanish to develop their company’s plan and procedures for complying with heat illness regulations.
