Protect your employees from the danger of Heat Stress
Employees who are aware of the potential dangers of over exposure to heat and humidity are less likely to become a victim of Heat Stress or any associated illness. Provide your employees an easy to access and easy to understand Heat Stress Poster and get them the information they need to remain injury free. If you have employees who are at risk from Heat Stress, the Heat Stress Poster can be a vital educational tool. Our Heat Stress Poster is 18" x 24" and comes fully laminated.
Operations involving high air temperatures, radiant heat sources, high humidity, direct physical contact with hot objects, or strenuous physical activities have a high potential for inducing heat stress in employees engaged in such operations. We recommend the following industries provide Heat Stress information to their employees:
Outdoor Agricultural environments in warm climates
Glass House Agricultural environments
Iron and steel foundries
Brick-firing and ceramic plants
Glass products facilities
Rubber products factories
Electrical utilities (particularly boiler rooms)
What does OSHA say about Heat Stress?
Although OSHA does not have a specific regulation covering heat stress hazards, the "General Duty Clause," Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the Act), requires each employer to, "furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm." OSHA has previously used the General Duty Clause to cite employers that have allowed employees to be exposed to potential serious physical harm from excessively hot work environments.
