OSHA app helps you keep an eye on the heat

OSHA has created a Heat Safety Tool to give people vital safety information when working out in the heat.

The App 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.

The app serves a reference for protective measures that should be taken to protect workers from heat-related illness, like drinking enough fluids, scheduling rest breaks, planning for and knowing what to do in an emergency.
