Guide for managing the risks of working in heat

January 7, 2018 Tara

As the weather heats up, it’s time to review your workplace to make sure you and your workers stay safe.

Safe Work Australia has published a new Guide for managing the risks of working heat. Read the details here: Managing the risks of working in heat

Heat is a hazard in many Australian workplaces, whether work is performed indoors or outdoors, so we have published a new guide on working in heat.

People in control of the workplace, such as managers and supervisors, and workers all have duties under work health and safety laws to manage risks to worker health and safety, such as those associated with working in heat.
