OSHA has kicked off its summer campaign to inform employers and employees about the dangers of working in the heat. The campaign will continue its annual outreach to highlight how heat-related worker fatalities are entirely preventable. In 2014 alone, 2,630 workers suffered from heat illness and 18 died from heat stroke and related causes on the job. The agency’s #WaterRestShade campaign website includes resources for employers and employees to identify heat exhaustion and heat stroke. OSHA has also created a smartphone app to help employers identify the heat index and risk level for a particular jobsite.
