Every year, dozens of workers die and thousands more become ill while working in extreme heat or humid conditions according to OSHA.
There are a range of heat illnesses that can affect anyone, regardless of age or physical condition.
If your commercial policyholders have employees working in extreme heat and high temperatures, a heat illness prevention program should be established.
Policyholders can also have vital safety information immediately available with the OSHA-NIOSH Heat Safety Tool. This App allows them to calculate the heat index for their worksite, and, based on the heat index, displays a risk level to outdoor workers.
