ATLAS Occupational Safety and Hearing Conservation 

For workplace safety and worker engagement 

Beat the heat_OSHA.jpg

With record high Summer temperatures, it is important to know about the dangers of a silent workplace hazard - HEAT

  • Heat is the leading weather-related killer

  • It also exacerbates existing health problems like asthma, kidney failure, and heart disease

  • It affects those working outdoors and indoors

  • It reduces sound quality of hearing aids and can even damage the aids

  • Heat stress killed 815 U.S. workers and seriously injured more than 70,000 workers (1992-2017) 

  • However, it is a highly underestimated hazard

 

We are participating in OSHA's Beat the Heat campaign  with infographics to raise knowledge of this hazard so that you can help yourself and others.

Be a cool hero!
