07/30/2019

High temperatures and humidity can stress the body's ability to cool itself, making heat exhaustion a concern during hot weather. Symptoms of exhaustion include cramps, fainting, dizziness and disorientation. Heat exhaustion is preventable with these tips!

• Condition yourself for working in hot weather. Start slowly then build up to more physical work over a few days.

• Drink plenty of water. Hydration is a continuous process. Don’t wait until you’re overly thirsty to hydrate!

• Use ventilation. Open windows and doors use fans where it’s safe. Make sure fans and electrical cords are in good working order. Keep fans away from wet areas.

• Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing when working in the sun.

• Use sunscreen SPF 50+ to protect your skin.
