Worker death from heat stroke cited as serious violation by OSHA

An Illinois company was cited by the US Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration after a worker died of a case of heat stroke that he suffered on his first day on the job. The fatal accident showed the need for employers to break in new employees slowly, the safety agency said. OSHA also stated that companies should let new workers get acclimated to the high-heat conditions with a regimen of rest, shade and adequate hydration.
