As the temperatures rise, heat-related illness should be a top concern. Often, managers and workers don’t know they’re in the danger zone until symptoms surface. Now, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has you covered. It recently rolled out a new heat safety mobile app that allows workers and supervisors to calculate the heat index for their worksite, and, based on the heat index, displays a risk level to outdoor workers. Then, with a simple “click,” you can get reminders about the protective measures that should be taken.
