Heat Stress

With possible record temperatures in the near future EHS would like to remind you that heat stress is a concern even here in the Northwest.

Working outside on campus or at home? Remember- Rest. Shade. Hydration. Be especially aware of this when the heat first arrives. It takes time for our bodies to acclimate. And yes, there’s an app for heat stress!

Indoor spaces on campus too hot? Contact Facilities Customer Service at 650-3420 to request an assessment of your space. Click here to review the procedure for the assessment.

More information, including a heat and humidity chart, is available in Chapter 22 of the Safety Information Book
