OSHA seeks to prevent heat illness with their revised Heat Safety Tool app.

Keep your employees safe from Heat illness with a free handy tool from OSHA. Here's the link for the app which is setup for the Android and Iphone OSHA heat app page.

As summer approaches and outdoor temperatures begin to rise, OSHA is once again informing the public about its Heat Safety Tool app to help protect workers from heat illness, which is available on iOS and Android devices in both English and Spanish. OSHA has updated the version for iPhones, which now offers full screen color alerts for all heat conditions, improved navigation and accessibility options, and compatibility upgrades. The heat app provides heat illness prevention guidance specific to the user's current outdoor workplace conditions using weather data provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The new version provides the daily maximum heat index intended to help prepare for extreme heat and plan work schedules accordingly. More than 187,000 users have downloaded this life-saving app.

OSHA's heat app was updated in-house and is fully open source, so app developers from across the country can access the code and contribute to or improve the app themselves.

Respiratory Protection Toolkit: OSHA partners with NIOSH and Joint Commission to protect hospital workers from transmissible diseases

OSHA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health have released a new toolkit to help health care employers protect hospital staff from respiratory hazards on the job. The Hospital Respiratory Protection Toolkit* includes information provided by The Joint Commission, an accrediting body for more than 20,500 health care organizations and programs in the United States.

Respirators are used to protect workers from exposures to airborne transmissible infectious diseases as well as chemicals and certain drugs that may be used in healthcare settings. OSHA's Respiratory Protection Standard requires health care employers to establish and maintain a respiratory protection program in workplaces where workers may be exposed to respiratory hazards.

Hospitals are one of the most hazardous places to work," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels. One of the ways that we can protect workers in a health care setting is by providing employers with the resources needed to ensure a safe workplace. This toolkit will help protect those workers who dedicate their lives to caring for others.

Additional information to protect hospital workers from injuries is also available on OSHA's Worker Safety in Hospitals webpage .
