Oregon OSHA cautions on high-temp risks for workers

Cautioning that workers in Oregon are not accustomed to recent high temperatures in the 90s and 100s, Oregon OSHA has issued precautions that employers can take to prevent employees from experiencing heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

“Employers need to plan ahead. These types of illnesses can sneak up on workers,” said Penny Wolf-McCormick, health enforcement manager for Oregon OSHA., in a press release. “If employers and workers take these precautions, workers will be safe and the summer will be much better for all concerned.”

Employers can also download pocket-sized booklets and posters in English and Spanish from Oregon OSHA's heat stress publications Web page.
