New Heat Toolkit
Heat Education & Awareness Tools (HEAT) is a set of resources and tools developed in collaboration with agricultural workers and educators. The HEAT Toolkit provides a train-the-trainer guide for the identification, prevention, and treatment of heat illness and is available in both English and Spanish. It includes a heat awareness mobile application supervisors can use to monitor weather conditions (Coming soon!), 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.
