Rising temperatures, rising risk: protecting your workforce from heat illness

Available: On-demand Webinar

Summer 2024 is predicted to be a hotter-than-average one, and the scorching temperatures expected can endanger outdoor and indoor workers alike. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), every year, over 170,000 work-related injuries and more than 2,000 deaths occur due to heat exposure in the United States alone. 

Several states have passed heat illness prevention regulations within the past couple of years, and now OSHA is working on developing a federal rule to cover indoor and outdoor work environments. As OSHA ramps up heat safety enforcement and launches new worker protection programs, remaining compliant with these regulations becomes even more important for employers. 

BLR Senior Legal Editor Laura Brody covers the topic of heat stress, focusing on recent regulatory activity related to occupational heat illness prevention.

  • Common heat related illnesses and industries most at risk
