OSHA’s Heat Enforcement Initiative

To combat the hazards associated with extreme heat exposure the White House announced enhanced and expanded efforts the U.S. Department of Labor is taking to address heat-related illnesses.

OSHA Area Directors will institute the following measures:
  • Prioritize inspections of heat-related complaints, referrals and employer-reported illnesses and initiate an onsite investigation where possible.
  • Instruct compliance officers to conduct an intervention or opening an inspection when they observe employees performing strenuous work in hot conditions.
  • Expand the scope of other inspections to address heat-related hazards where worksite conditions or other evidence indicates these hazards may be present.

Virtual Reporting

As many of you already know, you can complete Inspections remotely using Virtual Safety Reports. But, we have recently added virtual reporting to both our Incident App and Forms App.

The best part of virtual reporting is that it is a standard feature with our Inspection, Incident and Forms Apps. You pay nothing to utilize this service!

Imagine needing to investigate an incident but you can’t get to the incident site in a timely manner, our Incident app will allow you to complete the initial investigative report, including photos, remotely, without ever having to leave your office!
