The Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced the availability of two new downloadable resources on heat illness prevention.
The first resource is a “Don’t Wait…Hydrate” sticker that is available in English and Spanish. The sticker can be provided to workers, placed around the workplace and in break areas, including on hard hats, to encourage drinking cool water. The stickers are available for download here.
The second resource is a “Heat Illness Illustrated Fact Sheet.” The fact sheet demonstrates how heat illness can be prevented and actions to take when workers experience symptoms of heat illness. The fact sheet is available for download here.
