Heat Safety Tool app helps combat heat exposure and stress

According to OSHA, thousands of workers suffer the effects of heat exposure each year. Those who work outdoors or in hot indoor environments are at particular risk for heat stress. In collaboration with National Weather Service, OSHA is continuing a summer-long campaign to promote heat safety and awareness. Part of this campaign includes updates to the Heat Safety Tool app, which allows both workers and supervisors to keep track of the heat index at their worksite and displaying a risk level for outdoor workers.
