OSHA Launches Annual Summer Campaign To Prevent Heat Related Illnesses

On May 22, 2014, OSHA announced the launch of its annual Campaign To Prevent Heat Illness For Outdoor Workers. For the 4th consecutive year, OSHA intends to raise awareness and educate both workers and employers about serious hazards of working in hot weather. The annual campaign provides resources and guidance to reduce the risk of hazard of heat related illnesses. According to OSHA, heat illness disproportionately affects those who have not yet built up a tolerance to hot weather. This is especially important for employment activities and employers in agriculture, construction, landscaping, and transportation. Visit OSHA’s Heat Campaign webpage for more information.
