Summer season coming up

Posted June 14, 2024

Brothers and Sisters,

 I hope this finds you well. We can’t get away from summer season, but we can stay safe during extreme heat by following several key safety measures. Staying hydrated is essential; workers should drink water frequently, ensuring they never become thirsty. Wearing light-colored, loose-fitting, and breathable clothing can help keep body temperatures down. It’s also important to gradually build up to heavy work, allowing the body to acclimatize to the heat. Taking more frequent breaks, especially in extreme heat and humidity, is crucial for preventing heat-related illnesses. Members should be alert for signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and supervisors should encourage everyone to watch out for each other. Additionally, planning the work schedule to avoid the hottest parts of the day and providing access to shade and cooling stations can significantly reduce the risk of heat stress. By implementing these practices, I believe we can protect themselves from the dangers of working in high temperatures.
