Training on Scaffold Hazard Recognition an Essential Safety Requirement

OSHA Standards require all employees who work on scaffolds to be trained on scaffold hazard recognition and prevention. Workers must be trained by a qualified* person to recognize the hazards associated with the type of scaffold used and to understand the procedures to control and minimize those hazards.

Heat Safety App

OSHA’s Heat Safety App allows workers and supervisors to calculate the heat index for their worksite, and, based on the heat index, displays a risk level to outdoor workers.

Heat Illness Can Be Deadly

During hot weather, especially with high humidity, body temperature can rise to dangerous levels and lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke if workers don’t drink enough water and rest in the shade.
