Congress is considering a bill (H.R. 4897/S. 2501) to protect workers by ensuring they have access to water, rest, shade, and other basic needs during dangerously hot days and in poorly climate-controlled indoor work environments.
These are commonsense safety measures that are proven to save lives.
Email your U.S. Senators and Representative now and help get this critical bill passed before any more workers die from extreme heat.
Note: If your Senators or Representative have already co-sponsored the legislation, the email you send will thank them for their leadership and urge them to immediately pass the bill.
