In the Summers of long ago, farmers and ranchers would schedule the day’s work based on the meteorologist predicted air temperature and humidity levels. Today, planning outdoor work activities can be completed with location, temperature, and humidity controls using the resources of handheld technology.

The OSHA-NIOSH Heat Safety Tool App features easy to read, easy to utilize heat index values for hourly forecasts, precautionary recommendations, and signs/symptoms and first aid information for heat-related illnesses.
