Heat Stress Awareness
Many people are exposed to heat on the job, in both indoor and outdoor environments. Worksites involving high air temperatures, radiant heat sources (e.g., sunlight, hot exhaust), high humidity, direct contact with hot objects, or strenuous physical activities have a high potential for causing heat-related illnesses.
Every year, many workers become sick from occupational heat exposure, and some are fatally injured. These illnesses and fatalities are preventable.
If you are an employer and would like to get a free evaluation of your worksite or training for your employees from an ADOSH consultant, please contact our consultation office at (602) 542-1769.
