May 31 is National Heat Awareness Day

OSHA and the National Weather Service will team up on May 31 to encourage employers and workers to recognize the warning signs for heat illness and keep workers safe. Every year, there are dozens of preventable worker deaths and thousands more workers become ill from extreme heat or humid conditions. 

Visit OSHA’s website for information on the agency’s Heat Illness Prevention Campaign, and the National Weather Service website for heat safety tips and resources.
