Filed in: Member Alert

Are you working outside and the heat getting to you?

Click here for a safety bulletin on the prevention of heat illness.

The Department of Labor has released a mobile app that monitors the heat index at worksites. The app, available in English and Spanish, combines heat index data from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration with the user’s location to determine necessary protective measures.

The app is designed for devices using an Android platform, and versions for BlackBerry and iPhone users will be released shortly. To download it, visit http://go.usa.gov/KFE.
