Heat-Related Illnesses


The heat of summer is in full swing. Each year in the United States, thousands of workers suffer from heat-related illnesses. While heat illnesses can affect all employees, new employees are at the highest risk. In fact, according to OSHA, over 70 percent of heat-related deaths occur during a worker’s first week of work. Keeping your employees safe by training them on what to look out for and how to prevent heat-related illnesses is necessary for their safety.
