New heat safety app | News
ATLANTA -- Too hot to work? There's an app for that!
OSHA has created a new Heat Safety App for smart phones. You simply type in your current temperature and humidity and the app displays a risk level for determining whether or not it is safe to work outside.
If you don't know what your current temperature or humidity levels are, you can just click "Get Current" and it uses your GPS location to get that information for you. This is especially handy if you are traveling.
The app also allows you to have reminders sent to tell you when to re-hydrate, when to take breaks, and how to adjust your work operations.
