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.
