June is National Safety Month

Last year we reported on how OSHA is “Turning up the Heat” on heat related illness. We provided the link to a press release regarding their campaign. With the dog days of summer around the corner, that press release reminded employers with outside workplaces about OSHA’s focus on the hazards of working in high heat.  The press release reinvigorated OSHA’s heat-related illness campaign that began leading into summer 2011, when OSHA produced a great deal of public information about heat-related illness, including a dedicated heat illness information page on OSHA’s website, a YouTube video, public press statements, speeches by senior Department of Labor and OSHA officials, and even a Heat Safety Smartphone App.
