OSHA Heat Safety Tool
The App allows workers and supervisors to calculate the heat index for their worksite, and, based on the heat index, displays a risk level to outdoor workers. Then, with a simple "click," you can get reminders about the protective measures that should be taken at that risk level to protect workers from heat-related illness-reminders about drinking enough fluids, scheduling rest breaks, planning for and knowing what to do in an emergency, adjusting work operations, gradually building up the workload for new workers, training on heat illness signs and symptoms, and monitoring each other for signs and symptoms of heat-related illness.

The UGA Trial Garden's Blog
Forestry Commission recently held three
workshops in Gainesville, Marietta and Mansfield to help communities
develop a personalized Community Forest Storm Mitigation Plan that focuses
specifically on trees and ways to avoid or mitigate the damage they
cause during a storm or other catastrophic event. Community Forest Storm
Mitigation plans serve as a guide for assessing current storm readiness,
for creating a summary of your community's current forest management
program and as a storm mitigation checklist. Presentations from the
workshops are available and Georgia Forestry Commission staff are available
to assist your community.
