Its Hot!

Posted June 28, 2024

I hope you all get to spend time with your families celebrating America’s independence next week.

Summer is approaching so I wanted to share some tips on beating the heat… SAFELY.

Avoid direct sunlight whenever possible.

The simplest way to beat the heat is to avoid direct sun exposure from 10am – 4pm. We know that may not be the easiest but you can plan to work in certain areas based on where the shade will be at those times when the sun exposure is the strongest.

Dress appropriately.

Light weight breathable clothing is best to keep you comfortable and to avoid heat exhaustion. Cotton, wool and polyester are the most effective moisture wicking fabric for when things get sweaty. The color of your clothing is important as well because lighter shades reflect the heat. The best hues to wear are white, gray and yellow. 

Water and Breaks.

Drink plenty of water! Take your break, find some shade, have a seat and drink your water slowly to get the maximum amount of hydration.
