OSHA’s got a free heat safety app for iPhone and Android phones/devices, and we wanted to make sure you knew about it.
The app calculates the heat index for your site, displays a risk level for your workers, and even gives you precautions to follow to keep workers safe.
We’ve got the link for you to click so you can download the app below. It’s been hot this year, and this isn’t a bad tool to have in the safety and health toolbox.
Here’s what you can go to download the app from the OSHA site.
You can get even more out of the app by backing it up with a fundamental understanding of the causes of heat stress. And we’ve got some stuff for you below to help with that.
Here’s a pretty informative article about heat stress here. Check that out if you’re interested.
