It’s that time of year again. The days are getting longer and it is becoming increasingly hotter throughout the day. Every year people die on the job from heat-related incidence. Though the majority of these come from the construction industry, it can happen to anyone.

Let’s take it one step further and make sure we follow the same suggestions away from the workplace. Summertime means ball games, days at the lake and other adventures with family and friends. Make sure everyone is drinking enough water, resting often when in the heat and when possible perform that activity in the shade.

OSHA has launched their Water. Rest. Shade. campaign again this year. Click the link below to see their suggestion for keeping cool and safe this summer.
