The Indiana Department of Labor is letting Hoosier employers and employees know about a new tool to help assess worksite heat safety. The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration smartphone app is free and available for both Android and iPhones. State officials say in 2011, 61 workers died nationally from heat-related injuries and illnesses, and that same year, Indiana workers experienced 100 cases of non-fatal injuries and illnesses related to heat exposure.
