Heat Illness Prevention Materials

Heat Education & Awareness Tools (HEAT) is a set of resources and tools developed in collaboration with agricultural workers and educators, to promote workplace safety and health in agriculture. The HEAT Toolkit provides a training guide for the identification, prevention, and treatment of heat illness and is available in both English and Spanish (pdf format). It includes worksite posters and interactive educational materials for workers. The facilitator's guide and curriculum provide a comprehensive approach to heat illness prevention by addressing risk factors for agricultural workers at the individual, workplace, and community levels.
