Summer is here and with it comes the dangers associated with heat, especially for those working in the heat throughout the summer months. It is important that workers know the dangers associated with extreme heat and are educated on ways to prevent and treat illness that arises as a result of increasing temperatures.
OSHA recommends that workers use the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature to find the most accurate measurements for heat hazards. The Wet Bulb Globe Temperature measures temperature, humidity, wind speed, and radiant heat. More information about heat stress can be found on the OSHA Alliance portion of our Partners page.
BCSP hopes everyone has a safe and happy summer and remember to be safe if you're working in hot conditions!
