Safety Alert: Working in heat – Stay safe this summer

January 22, 2018 Tara

Safe Work Australia has published a new guide for managing the risks of working in heat. The guide provides information on how to manage the risks associated with working in heat and what to do if a worker begins to suffer from a heat-related illness.

With heatwave conditions forecast across the State in the coming weeks, this is a timely reminder to review your workplace to ensure that you and your workers stay safe.

People in control of the workplace, such as managers, 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.
