OSHA is holding a contest to help educate workers and employers about workplace heat hazards, raise awareness on the dangers of excessive heat and motivate employers and workers to prevent heat illness.
The agency’s “Beat the Heat” contest is a nationwide competition “for stakeholders in all industries to share their best tools and other resources for informing workers about the dangers of heat exposure in indoor and outdoor workplaces.”
This contest is open to all industries and will be judged by a panel of subject matter experts from OSHA and other federal agencies.
Winners will be chosen based on:
- the best non-English language entry
- indoor heat emphasis
- strength of message, and
- young worker emphasis.
All submissions must be received by June 9, 2023. For contest rules and submission instructions, click here.
Winners will have their submissions displayed on the OSHA website and featured in the agency’s QuickTakes and The Heat Source newsletters. They will also receive a letter of appreciation from Assistant Secretary for OSHA Doug Parker, a Beat the Heat Challenge Coin and a congratulatory certificate.
