Keep Safety First in The Summer Months

As we enter into the hot months, remember it’s important to keep hydrated as you are working with high temperature furnaces. Heat related illnesses can be fatal. OSHA has released a free application for mobile devices that enables workers and supervisors to monitor the heat index at their work sites. The app displays a risk level for workers based on the heat index, as well as reminders about protective measures that should be taken at that risk level. Since its 2011 launch, more than 130,000 users have downloaded the app. Available for Android-based platforms and the iPhone, the app can be downloaded in English and Spanish by visiting:
