Four Cool Resources & Products to Battle Heat Illness from Safety Experts at Magid

Heat safety is more important than ever now that summer is here, and high temperatures are on the way. Friday, May 27th, is National Heat Awareness Day. This significant date comes only a short month after The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) launched a targeted Heat Stress National Enforcement Program (NEP) to protect workers across the nation from the increasing threat of heat-related illness. Through this program, OSHA will proactively inspect workplaces and high-risk worksites for heat-related hazards.

This shocking data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics reminds us why this day is so imperative:

  • Every day, in the United States, 11 workers on average are seriously injured or die from heat stress
  • The average cost per heat prostration incident is over $53,000
  • Heat illness is 100% preventable

Many safety managers and industrial workers are seeking additional information for battling heat illness, and Magid is here to help with four free resources and innovative products to help keep workers safe.
