OSHA's Heat Safety App

OSHA has a Heat Safety Tool, where vital safety information is made available right on your mobile phone.

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.

You can get reminders about the protective measures that should be taken at that risk level. Notices and reminders might prompt you towards:
  1. drinking enough fluids
  2. scheduling rest breaks
  3. planning for and knowing what to do in an emergency (say a hurricane is in the forecast)
  4. adjusting work operations
  5. gradually building up the workload for new workers
  6. training on heat illness signs and symptoms
  7. monitoring each other for signs and symptoms of heat-related illness
Stay informed and safe in the heat, check your risk level.
