Heat Safety Initiatives

The Heat Safety & PerformanceCoalition

The Heat Safety & PerformanceCoalition (HSPC) is run by passionate industry leaders, subject matter experts, and researchers whose sole purpose is to eliminate heat-related injuries and illnesses in the workplace. The HSPC provides heat-safety research, education, and awareness and was created to help organizations develop and implement heat safety solutions to keep workers safe. We believe, and science proves, that implementing heat-safety standards not only protects workers but drives efficiency and productivity in the workplace.

Increasing access to athletic Training services in secondary schools.

Team Up for Sports Safety (TUFFS)

The TUFSS project is able to support athletic safety initiatives in secondary school athletics across all 50 states and the District of Columbia with substantial financial support from the NFL Foundation, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), and several private donors. The TUFSS initiative builds on research published by KSI in 2017, which examined existing state mandates to assess their inclusion of best-practice policies to mitigate catastrophic injuries and illnesses in sports. In the initial 2017 review, KSI found that most states did not include the most widely accepted standards that are shown to reduce the risk of death from sudden cardiac arrest, traumatic head injuries, exertional heat strokes, and exertional collapse associated with sickling, conditions that comprise 90% of all sports.
