WASHINGTON - Timely information is available from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) about ways workers can protect themselves against the effects of heat and other dangers on the jobsite. Educational tools available from OSHA include:

  • "Protecting Yourself in the Sun" is a revised pocket card that describes common physical features of skin cancer that can be caused by exposure to the sun.

  • "Working Outdoors" is an OSHA fact sheet that offers advice on ways to protect against exposure to UV radiation, precautions to take if working in extreme heat, and how to protect against Lyme disease and West Nile virus.

  • OSHA's "Heat Stress Card" lists tips and precautions to help prevent heat-related deaths and injuries.

    These OSHA publications can be downloaded from the agency's Web site (www.osha.gov) or requested from the OSHA publications office, Rm. N3101, 200 Constitution Ave. N.W., Washington, DC 20210.
