Promotional poster from the OSHA Heat Illness Prevention Campaign
Thousands of workers are affected by heat illness each year—environmental heat is a recognized hazard. Workers have the right to receive information and training about hazards and their prevention, and it is the employer's responsibility to provide this. In a training, it is important to include the health effects of heat, how and when to respond to symptoms, and how to prevent them from occurring. This OSHA Heat Illness Prevention Training Guide, in PDF format, includes information in short, interactive lesson plans that can be completed in a tailgate or toolbox talk. Training should be in a language that the worker can understand.
