Workplace injuries come in many forms, and during the hot months of the year, these injuries can be related to the extreme heat that is seen in many parts of the country. For California workers who are exposed to the heat during work hours, it is vitally important to know how to stay safe to prevent heat-related illness. Workplace injuries of this kind can be prevented by safety practices that should be implemented by employers.

The company, National Distribution Center LP -- which does business at this location as NFI -- appealed the citations, and a settlement was reached.
