Beat the Heat with OSHA’s Heat Safety App
When you’re working in the heat, safety comes first. With the OSHA Heat Safety Tool, you have vital safety information available whenever and wherever you need it — right on your mobile phone.
The App allows workers and supervisors to calculate the heat index for their worksite, and, based on the heat index, displays a risk level to outdoor workers.
Then, with a simple tap, you can get reminders about the protective measures that should be taken at that risk level to protect workers from heat-related illness. Stay informed and safe in the heat, check your risk level.

OSHA’s Heat Illness Prevention campaign, launched in 2011, educates employers and workers on the dangers of working in the heat. Through training sessions, outreach events, informational sessions, publications, social media messaging and media appearances, millions of workers and employers have learned how to protect workers from heat. Their safety message comes down to three key words: Water. Rest. Shade.
