OSHA Heat Safety Tool

OSHA Heat Safety Tool


When you're working in the heat, safety comes first. With the OSHA Heat Safety Tool, you have vital safety information available whenever and wherever you need it — right on your mobile phone.
The App allows workers and supervisors to calculate the heat index for their worksite, and, based on the heat index, displays a risk level to outdoor workers. Then, with a simple tap, you can get reminders about the protective measures that should be taken at that risk level to protect workers from heat-related illness—reminders about drinking enough fluids, scheduling rest breaks, planning for and knowing what to do in an emergency, adjusting work operations, gradually building up the workload for new workers, training on heat illness signs and symptoms, and monitoring each other for signs and symptoms of heat-related illness.
Stay informed and safe in the heat, check your risk level.
For more information about safety while working in the heat, see OSHA’s heat illness webpage, including new online guidance about using the heat index to protect workers.

Five Stars Work in the oilfield in West Texas and this app has been very beneficial. I have used it for several months across four devices: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (currently), S4 and S5, and an LG tablet. All of my devices have had the most current operating systems at the time. Only time this app has had an issue with getting the GPS location is when my device has been under a metal shelter or roof. A couple of suggestions: Make some of the data internal so that if the user is in a remote location and out of a cell service area (common for us out here), some information is still available for heat index and precautions when the temp and humidity are manually entered; add a feature to look up the conditions in other areas via zip code or city; integrate special weather alerts along with notifications such as heat advisories and severe weather. Great app! Thank you!
