: On
October 27, 2021, OSHA issued an
ANPRM to initiate rulemaking to protect
indoor and outdoor workers from
hazardous heat and to obtain additional
information about the extent and nature
of hazardous heat in the workplace and
the nature and effectiveness of
interventions and controls used to
prevent heat-related injury and illness.
The public comment period for the
ANPRM was to close on December 27,
2021, 60 days after publication of the
ANPRM. However, OSHA received
requests from stakeholders to extend the
comment period by an additional 30
days (Document ID 0145) or 60 days
(Document ID 0101, 0133, 0141, 0143,
0144, 0148, 0152, 0159). These
stakeholders explained that they need
additional time to carefully review the
questions in the ANPRM, obtain input
from members, and provide comments
(see, e.g., Document ID 0101).
OSHA agrees to an extension of the
public comment period and believes a
30-day extension is sufficient and
appropriate in order to balance the
agency’s need for timely input to inform
how the agency will proceed with the
rulemaking with these stakeholder
requests. Therefore, OSHA is extending
the public comment period until
January 26, 2022.
