It’s HOT! Water – Rest – Shade
Updated On: Jul 27, 2015

July 27, 2015

Now that the heat of summer has finally arrived we remind all members to take proper precautions while working outside.  All members should review safety documentation given to them by their employers. Supplemental information on working in hot weather can be found on OSHA’s website osha.gov.

Every year, thousands of workers become sick from exposure to heat, and some even die. These illnesses and deaths are preventable. Remember water, rest, shade.

Drinking water often, taking breaks, and limiting time in the heat can help prevent heat illness. It’s important to know and look out for the symptoms of heat illness in yourself and others during hot weather.

OSHA developed a Heat Safety App which allows workers and supervisors to calculate the heat index for their work-site, and based on the heat index, displays a risk level. With a simple "click," you can get reminders about the protective measures that should be taken at that risk level to protect yourself from heat-related illness. Download the app now by clicking here

OSHA's nationwide Heat Illness Prevention Campaign aims to raise awareness and teach workers and employers about the dangers of working in hot weather and provide valuable resources to address these concerns. More information on OSHA’s Heat Illness Prevention Campaign can be found here.
