Today's OSHA Workplace Safety Reminder - "Don't wait, plan ahead for extreme weather events."
"Research shows extreme weather events are likely to become more frequent as a result of climate change. At the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, we know worker safety is an important part of climate resilience ‒ that is, how we prepare for and respond to climate-related risks. During National Preparedness Month in September, we are getting the word out on how important it is for employers to plan ahead.
Because extreme climate events are so unpredictable, follow these four steps NOW to keep workers safe during an emergency."
