WATER. REST. SHADE. Keep Workers Safe in the Heat
OSHA’s Heat Illness Prevention Campaign , launched in 2011, educates employers and workers on the dangers of working in the heat. Through training sessions, outreach events, informational sessions, publications, social media messaging and media appearances, millions of workers and employers have learned how to protect workers from heat.

OSHA'S safety message comes down to three words: WATER. REST. SHADE.
OSHA's Occupational Exposure to Heat page explains what employers can do to keep workers safe and what workers need to know - including factors for heat illness, adapting to working in indoor and outdoor heat, protecting workers, recognizing symptoms and first aid training. The page also includes resources for specific industries and OSHA workplace standards. Also look for heat illness educational and training materials on the Publications page .

Employers Must Protect Temporary Workers

Temporary workers are those supplied to a host employer and paid by a staffing agency, whether or not the job is actually temporary. Whether temporary or permanent, all workers always have a right to a safe and healthy workplace. The staffing agency and the staffing agency’s client (the host employer) are joint employers of temporary workers, and both are responsible for providing and maintaining a safe work environment for those workers.

Each employer should consider the hazards it is in a position to prevent and correct, and in a position to comply with OSHA standards. For example, staffing agencies might provide general safety and health training, and host employers provide specific training tailored to the particular workplace equipment and hazards. The key is communication between the agency and the host employer to ensure that the necessary protections are provided.

OSHA's Protecting Temporary Workers webpage offers a wide range of resources, including:
