As you may have seen in the news this week, we are expecting high temperatures in the next few days. The current forecast models have the Twin Cities area reaching the mid to upper 90’s with 60%+ humidity. Based on information from the U.S. National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this hot weather will feel more like 110° – 125°. These temps are not only uncomfortable, but they have the potential to be deadly.
Below are some resources and tools to help employers and employees combat the effects of heat exposure. There is even a free app available from OSHA with helpful tips and information.
