Stay Safe In The Heat

BAC members across the country regularly work in conditions outdoors in direct sunlight or in enclosed spaces that are not climate-controlled. This leads construction workers to suffer from heat-related illnesses and, in severe cases, death.

Before working in extreme heat, review the Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) checklists: Overall Heat-Illness Prevention Program Checklist for Construction and Daily Heat-Illness Prevention Checklist for Construction

OSHA's Heat Illness Prevention campaign educates employers and workers on heat hazards and provides resources to keep workers safe.
