OSHA is sponsoring a “Beat the Heat Contest” to raise awareness about the hazards of heat exposure in indoor and outdoor workplaces and identify how businesses across the nation control these hazards. Participants are asked to submit an awareness tool (e.g., infographic, poster, training curriculum, webpage, logo etc.,) to increase heat hazard recognition among employers and workers. The contest is open to stakeholders nationwide, in any industry; this is where your help is needed!
Heat illness prevention is feasible, and we need your help to show it. Heat hazard recognition and heat illness prevention are essential not only for the well-being of workers but also for the success of the American workplace. Entering this contest can help your organization gain recognition for its efforts to protect workers and provide an opportunity to learn from other stakeholders. Attached is a one-page overview of the contest in English and Spanish.
The contest is open now, and submissions are due by June 9, 2023. For more information or to enter the contest, visit OSHA’s Beat the Heat Contest webpage.
