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.

Very useful for field staff Would rate 5 stars if the app allowed an option to include notifications when the level changes from one grade to another. As it stands, it is a very useful tool.

This app never gets my location no matter where I'm at. The info is good and if you punch in the temp and humidity level it works. I could carry a thermometer on the job but who carries a barometer out in the field. Also the osha recommend breaks for each heat index levels could be helpful.
