Cal/OSHA is actively investigating these two recent cases as suspected heat related deaths. One was a farmworker in Coalinga, and the other, s an 18 year old construction worker for a small company in Friant. While the deaths have been attributed to heat, the question is whether they should really be attributed to the failure of the employers to provide workers with water, shade and rest breaks as required by law.
