Site Information and assistance

Monday, April 9, 2018

It may be cooling down outside, but heat can still pose a risk to indoor workers.

Hospitality workers in kitchens, factory workers who use hot machinery, and construction workers who go into roof cavities with no air flow are just some examples of workers at risk.

Managers, supervisors and workers all have duties under work health and safety laws to manage heat risks and protect worker health and safety.

To help you identify hazards in your workplace you should talk to workers, including any health and safety representatives, and other duty holders.

Read our guide for information on how to identify and address hazards which may cause heat-related illness, and information on what to do if a worker begins to suffer from a heat-related illness.

This site is undergoing constant refinement. If you have noticed something that needs attention or have ideas for the site please let us know.
