Reducing Risks When Working in Extreme Heat
Soaring outdoor temperatures put you and your staff at higher risk for heat related illness, such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke. To help reduce this risk, follow precautions such as these outlined by Ready.gov: Stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun, use cooling fans, stay hydrated and wear lightweight and loose fitting clothes. Avoid consuming alcohol, caffeinated drinks and heavy meals. Monitor yourself and coworkers for signs and symptoms of heat related illness.
