OSHA heat safety mobile appOSHA is making available a mobile application designed to keep outdoor workers safe during summer heat.

 As part of the agency’s nationwide campaign to prevent heat-related illnesses, the OSHA Heat Safety Tool -- available for iPhone and Android platforms -- allows workers to view the risk level for outdoor work based on the heat index in their area. Then, workers and employers can click to get reminders  about the protective measures that should be taken, such as drinking enough fluids, scheduling rest breaks, planning for emergencies, gradually increasing the workload for new workers, training on heat illness signs and symptoms, and monitoring each other for signs and symptoms of heat-related illness.

The app is vailable in English and Spanish.
