Florida Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, D-Orlando, recently brought forth a bill that would set a statewide standard for those working outdoors in relation to heat illness prevention. Currently, OSHA has guidelines and recommendations to avoid heat hazards, but there is no set standard for heat exposure. Should OSHA write its standards or should warmer states be pushing their own legislation?

Do we really need more regulations? Not, until we enforce common sense, intuitiveness, and logic. More won't help, but it will sure supplement the government coffers with added financial penalties. Who would be responsible, the worker or his employer. What if it happens in someone's backyard while doing a favor?
