Today's forecasted heat index – 105 degrees to 110 degrees – is high enough that some some outdoor workers could become seriously ill if they and their employers don't take precautions, according to guidelines developed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
The advice applies to anyone spending time outside – including those at the 2013 U.S. Senior Open.
