Did you now that construction workers accounted for more than 1/3 of all occupational heat-related deaths between 1992 and 2016, despite only making up 6 percent of the total workforce?
Face it: YOU are at RISK. That risk continues to increase with each summer’s record-breaking temperatures.
That’s why CPWR has released four new infographics (examples below), developed through the OSHA-CPWR Alliance, that show workers how they can protect themselves against the heat. The infographics can be downloaded at full resolution here, in English or Spanish.
