Summer may be wrapping up, but in many areas of the country, cooler days are still a distant hope. And that means heat-related illnesses are still a threat. Keep a close eye on the danger with OSHA’s latest mobile app, the Heat Safety Tool. This App will calculate the heat index for your worksite, identify the level of risk to your outdoor workers and remind you about protective measures you sould take under the given conditions.
The app is available for Andrios, Iphone and some Blackberry phones. For more information, visit https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/heatillness/heat_index/heat_app.html
