OSHA Launches ‘Beat the Heat’ Contest

April 19, 2023
OSHA is seeking new tools to increase awareness of heat hazards at work.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced the launch of a nationwide competition for stakeholders in all industries to share their best tools and other resources for informing workers about the dangers of heat exposure in indoor and outdoor workplaces.

OSHA’s “Beat the Heat” contest seeks to educate workers and employers about workplace heat hazards, raise industry and public awareness of the dangers excessive heat presents to workers and motivate employers and workers to act to prevent heat illness.

The competition will be judged by a panel of subject matter experts in OSHA and other federal agencies. The panel will choose winners based on innovation, creativity, indoor heat emphasis, the strength of message and young worker emphasis.

All submissions must be received by June 9, 2023. Visit the OSHA Beat the Heat contest webpage for contest rules and submission instructions.
