As you read through it, you will see 3 columns.  The first is existing language, the second is the amended language and the third is the guidance on the new requirements.  Please take the time to read through these regulations and understand them thoroughly.  OSHA will be out investigating and handing out large fines.  They will also be releasing this information to the media and local media loves to let people know when an employer is caught.  If you don’t want those problems, it is best to adjust to these rules NOW.  We are expecting over 80 temperatures next week and on-going for the next several months.
