Let Your Representative Know That All Workers Need Water Breaks
As we’ve all experienced record-breaking heat this summer, workers across the country have been left without any federal protections to ensure safe working conditions in extreme heat.
All workers need – and deserve – adequate time to rest and take water breaks as well as access to medical services for heat-related illnesses. We can’t rely on employers to provide those protections on their own. Some Republicans, like Governor Greg Abbott in Texas, are even moving to eliminate local heat protections for workers, an outrageous attack on their safety. There needs to be a federal workplace heat standard that protects the health and safety of workers.
Fill out this form right now and we’ll connect you to your representative. Ask them to support creating federal standards so that all workers have water breaks and other heat protections. Let them know that you, and workers across the country, are counting on them to ensure that all workers have a safe work environment, no matter how hot it is outside

Workers need to be able to take water breaks and rest in extreme heat
Hello, I’m a constituent from [part of the state] and I’m calling to tell [Representative] that all workers should have a safe work environment, especially in extreme heat.
All across the country, we’ve been experiencing record-breaking heat, but there are no federal protections that ensure that workers are able to take breaks to drink water and rest. Without these protections, their health and lives are at risk. Workers deserve better.
I’m asking [Representative] to stand up for workers everywhere and support creating federal workplace heat standards, so that all workers have the protections they need to stay safe on the job
