OSHA works to prevent heat illness through campaign
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) 2012 Heat Illness Prevention Campaign is a nationwide effort to educate employees and their employers about the hazards of working outdoors in heat and how to prevent heat-related illnesses.
OSHA's heat illness Web page features industry-specific educational materials and resources, including a heat illness smart phone application in English and Spanish. The application calculates the heat index for a specific job site, displays the risk level to outdoor workers based on the heat index, and sends reminders to employers and employees about protective measures that should be taken at that risk level to protect themselves from heat-related illnesses.
