With summer in full swing, millions of Americans who must work outside or in certain indoor environments are coping with hot temperatures – and their effects on health.

OSHA is reminding employers to take additional precautions to reduce the risks of heat exposure. These include:

  • providing frequent water breaks
  • allowing ample time to rest, and
  • providing shade
  • providing cooling vests and other cooling products

If you’re an employer or a safety professional, OSHA wants to hear about the steps you are taking to keeping workers safe from extreme heat.
