OSHA boss, David Michaels warns workers that "Drinking water often, taking breaks, and limiting time in the heat are simple, effective ways to prevent heat illness."
In addition to providing a full complement of resources and educational materials on heat illness, and to assist employers and employees, OSHA has partnered with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to provide weather service alerts. These alerts will include worker safety precautions and will be available when heat alerts are issued across the U.S.
