I hope everyone enjoys a safe, cool, and happy 4th of July week!
It is definitely hot out there this week, and OSHA is encouraging employers to protect workers from heat-related illnesses and hazards. Heat-related illnesses are not only associated with outdoor work environments, and can occur in indoor work areas such as warehouses, material handling areas, and other environments. Be sure you consider the possibility of elevated temperatures affecting your work areas and plan accordingly. Remind employees of the signs and symptoms of heat-related illness and the measures they can take to prevent illness.
