OSHA app updated to detect hot weather conditions

Officials of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently updated a phone application (app) for workers to monitor hot temperatures while in the field, azcentral reported on June 17.

The “OSHA Heat” app that was originally launched in 2011 reportedly released an improved version for users to detect heat index in particular areas and warn them of the illnesses that they may get from exposure to excessive heat. The Department of Labor revealed that 650 workers, the majority of which were male, have died since 1999 as a result of being exposed to heat. People may download the “OSHA Heat” app in their mobile phones for free.

Workers unfortunately are left dealing with financial problems when they suffer illnesses caused by their workplace. If you are in this difficult situation, you should be entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits for your fast recovery. If you are applying for your benefits in Minnesota, the attorneys of Robert Wilson & Associates may work for you.
