Protect Your Team from Heat Stress
Prevent Heat Stress
Avoiding the dangers of heat stress is a joint effort where everyone involved must do their part to protect themselves and their coworkers.

Read this infographic from the CDC to learn more about heat stress and how to keep your workers safe in hot, challenging conditions.
