Heat Related Injuries

Posted June 24, 2022

Welcome brothers and sisters,

As the summer begins and work starts to pick up in the valley, please make every effort to be as safe as possible and protect you and your family. If you are on the job site, make sure you are hydrating and drinking water every hour to avoid dehydration. Make sure if you are doing outdoor activity with your family, please follow the same rules and be sure to hydrate. If you are in extreme heat, make sure you have a place that you can go to lower your body temperature if it is elevated due to heat. You need to make sure you hydrate before you get into a situation to avoid heat stroke or a heat related incident. Each year an average of 658 people succumb to extreme heat, this is preventable. Please go to DIR.gov to find a full page of ways to prevent heat exhaustion.

Thank you,

John Tweedt

Regional Director DC 16
