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.

Useless All I get is "Can not(sic) get your location information". GPS on the device is working just fine. Every other GPS enabled app on the device has location information. Do I need a separate app or a thermometer and hygrometer (not a barometer as others have suggested) to get temp/humidity information just to make this app usable?

What a cool idea for an app! :D Haven't tried this out yet (as it's 15 degrees out presently) and i was wondering: is there a corresponding wind chill/exposure/frostbite/hypothermia calculating tool? Would totally install that!!!

Can't seem to get location Good overall, but can't seem to automatically get location and temp data; no settings for update intervals and from what time to what time. Unfortunately it can't calculate any heat less than 80f even with high humidity like 79f w 60% humidity.
