Bill Proposes Breaks for Construction Workers Year Round

OSHA is looking to pass a new bill that proposes workers receive a mandated 15-minute break every 4 hours throughout the entire year. Representative Sylvia Garcia (D-Houston) filed the Construction Injury Prevention Act  after 384 workers died of heat-related complications over the last decade.

If the proposed bill is introduced, employers will be required to inform employees of their right to breaks and post a notice to this effect in a public place in English and Spanish.
