OSHA Seeks Feedback on 2013 Heat Campaign

Published April 16, 2014

OSHA has distributed a short online survey to evaluate the agency's 2013 campaign to prevent heat illness in workers. The purpose of the survey is to gauge the usefulness of OSHA's heat outreach campaign materials and identify possible updates to the campaign. Survey results will also help OSHA to identify successful elements of the campaign that the agency should consider using in other campaigns.

The survey is anonymous and should take approximately 15–20 minutes to complete. The survey closes on June 30. Complete the survey online.

Resources related to OSHA’s heat outreach campaign are available in English and Spanish on the agency’s website.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 61 workers died from heat illness in 2011, and an additional 4,420 workers became ill. A matrix of risk levels and protective measures based on the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s heat index can be found on OSHA’s website.
