With 18 of the last 19 summers being the hottest on record, the danger of extreme heat is increasing. That’s why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has launched a new National Emphasis Program (NEP) on heat safety, covering all kinds of industries—including commercial kitchens.
As part of the NEP, OSHA is conducting heat-related inspections in high-risk workplaces—both outdoor and indoor—like kitchens. If a violation is discovered—like a lack of hydration options, for example—citations and fines will be issued to your business.
One of the main things OSHA will be inspecting for is hydration options. Regulations dictate that you must always keep cold water in close proximity to the kitchen.
And water is great, but sometimes you need more to stay properly hydrated.
That’s where Sqwincher’s 45 years of scientifically formulated hydration expertise come in.Download Kitchen Hydration Brochure
