Safe Work Australia says with Summer rolling around again, workers should be reminded of the risks of working in heat and in air pollution.

Working in heat or air pollution can be hazardous and can cause harm to workers in both indoor and outdoor work environments.

Over the 10 years from 2009-10 to 2018-19, there were 1,774 workers’ compensation claims resulting from working in heat.

“Employers must take precautions this summer and know the risks of working in heat and/or air pollution and protect worker health and safety,” Safe Work says.

The authority has provided links to its working in heat resources.
