Working in Hot Conditions

In February 1, 2014

It’s been a relatively mild summer so far in the Ohio valley but don’t bet that the “dog days” are behind us.  Although the first day of fall is rapidly approaching on September 22nd,  August and September can still offer some of the hottest days of our summer season.  If you work outdoors or in non climate controlled indoor facilities you already know the importance of staying hydrated.  Getting acclimated to these conditions includes some planning before your work day begins to avoid heat related illness, especially for new workers that are experiencing work in hot, humid conditions for the first time.  There is an app for that… The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have developed a tool to help you calculate your risk and to take protective measures to ensure you minimize the chance of heat related illness.
