Heat illnesses can affect anyone, regardless of age or physical condition.  As the heat index rises  there is a much higher risk for heat-related illness so employers must take additional measures to protect workers. Hazardous heat exposure can occur indoors or outdoors and during any season if the conditions are right, not only during heat waves. This webinar taught by Trust staff will review OSHA’s Heat Illness Prevention campaign which educates employers and workers on the dangers of working in the heat. Millions of workers and employers have learned how to protect workers from heat exposures.  Their safety message comes down to three key words: Water. Rest. Shade.
