Hot Fun in the Summertime
Keep Your Cool with Seasonal Resources
Summer means thinking about how to work safely in all kinds of conditions as sites may be affected by extreme heat, poor air quality from forest fires, storms, bugs or other factors.

CCOHS provides a great infographic on Working in the Heat with ways to protect workers from heat stress disorders.

WorkSafe outlines Heat Stress Disorders and recommends cooling measures such as:
  • Rest breaks
  • Adequate supplies of drinking water
  • Training workers to recognize heat disorders

Sun exposure also presents risks. This video on Sun Safety at Work says those who work outdoors are up to 3.5x more likely to develop skin cancer than indoor workers.
