Every year, dozens of workers die and thousands more become ill while working in hot or humid conditions. OSHA's Heat Illness Prevention campaign educates employers and workers on heat hazards and provides resources to keep workers safe.


Total Worker

Health Program

NIOSH was created by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The act mandates "to assure so far as possible every man and woman in the Nation safe and healthful working conditions." Keeping workers safe is the foundation of the Total Worker Health approach.


Remote Work Policies 101: Establishing Clear Guidelines for Employee Safety

In 2022, over a third of employees found themselves working from home, a significant rise from pre-pandemic levels, as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. With this shift, employers face the challenge of ensuring the safety and well-being of their remote workforce. 


2024 TREP Safety Poster Contest

The Three Rivers Education Partnership (TREP) is thrilled to announce the winners of our annual poster contest, which focused on the theme of SAFETY—recognizing and eliminating safety hazards. This year's contest invited students to create posters that emphasize the importance of making safe choices to prevent accidents and injuries in various aspects of life, whether at home, work, play, or school. 

We would like to thank our esteemed judges for their time and expertise in evaluating the entries. Your efforts in selecting the winners were instrumental in highlighting the best representations of safety awareness and creativity. 

Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest and contributed to fostering a culture of safety in our community. We look forward to continuing this important tradition and inspiring future generations to think and act safely. 

Stay safe and keep up the great work!
