Heat Illness Prevention Toolkit
Under OSHA law, employers are responsible for providing workplaces free of known safety hazards.
This includes protecting workers from extreme heat. An employer with workers exposed to high temperatures should establish a complete heat illness prevention program.
- Provide workers with water, rest and shade.
- Allow new or returning workers to gradually increase workloads and take more frequent breaks as they acclimatize, or build a tolerance for working in the heat.
- Plan for emergencies and train workers on prevention.
- Monitor workers for signs of illness.
In our new toolkit, we provide you with the ready to use Heat Illness Prevention Training slides in both English and Spanish.
