Since You Can't Turn Off the Sun, Turn On Your Heat Illness Prevention Program - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

Length: 1 hour


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn to identify responsibilities, risk factors, engineering controls, and other practices for preventing heat related illnesses and help workers continue to work safely when the temperatures soar.



With parts of the country suffering record-breaking temperatures this summer, employers know they need to be on guard against heat dangers for both indoor and outdoor workers.

As the temperatures continue to rise, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is mulling over a specific heat standard, which is currently in the pre-rule stage. While it remains to be seen whether this standard is eventually issued, employers should have a plan to keep workers safe when they have to work in the heat and humidity, regardless.

From acclimating new employees to providing water and adequate rest periods, having a plan that identifies responsibilities, risk factors, engineering controls, and other practices that will be used to prevent heat related illnesses will help workers continue to work safely when the temperatures soar. Not only will you be keeping workers safe, but having this plan in place could keep you ahead of the potential adoption of OSHA's new heat standard.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate heat, humidity, personal protective equipment (PPE), and other factors to establish safe work thresholds.
  • Establish a heat illness prevention plan.
  • Train supervisors to follow adjusted schedules and look for signs of heat illnesses.
  • Implement engineering controls to increase worker comfort.
  • Provide appropriate water and rest areas.
  • Understand the potential impact of OSHA's proposed heat standard.
  • Comply with OSHA's proposed heat standard, if/when it is eventually issued.
