Three Ways to Prevent Heat Illness: Water. Rest. Shade.

While your body normally sweats in order to cool off, extreme conditions can cause your body temperature to rise to dangerous levels. This means that sweating alone is not enough to help keep you cool in the heat and humidity we’ve been experiencing these past few weeks.

Workers who perform heavy work in hot and humid weather, and those who use bulky clothing and equipment, are at high risk  for heat illness. Signs of heat illness include heat rash, heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Did you know that heat stroke can lead to death if not treated immediately?

In order to prevent heat illness, outdoor workers should drink water often, take breaks frequently, and limit their time in the heat. Look for signs of heat illness both in yourself and in fellow co-workers. Most importantly, know what to do if an emergency happens.
