WorkSafe WA has alerted businesses to the fact that Summer and the hot days accompanying it have not yet come to an end, so workers need to be protected from heat stress or worse, heat stroke which can be fatal.
High temperatures can be expected which could place both outdoor and indoor workers at risk, and employers need to be prepared.
Practicing good workplace health and safety can help keep workers safe. Employers and workers should work together. Employers should provide the necessary training, supervision and controls to avoid heat stress and employees need to ensure they abide by good WH&S practices, as their training and instruction from employers mandates.
