    Heat illness includes heat cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, and heatstroke.

    Workers have died or suffered serious health problems from these conditions.

  • Watch For Symptoms

    Watch for symptoms in yourself and your coworkers.

    If you feel any symptoms, tell your coworkers and supervisor immediately because you may need medical help.

  • Communicating With Your Supervisor

    If you are new to working in the heat or have had heat illness before it is important to let your supervisor know.
    response:
  • Stay Alert To The Weather

    During a heat wave you are at greater risk of getting sick. You need to watch yourself and coworkers more closely, and may need to drink more water, take more breaks, and use other measures.
    response:
  • Drink Enough Cool, Fresh Water

    -In hot conditions, drink at least one 8-ounce cup (3 cones) every 15 minutes during your entire work shift (or take appropriate measures to stay hydrated)

    -Do not wait until you are thirsty to drink water

    -Do not drink alcohol. Avoid coffee. Choose water over soft drinks
    response:
  • Take Rest Breaks In The Shade

    Always be sure that you are in a shaded area during your rest breaks. If one is not provided, let your supervisor know.
    response:
  • Proper Clothing

    Here is a list of what to wear on a hot day:

    -Loose fitting, light-weight and light-colored cotton clothes
    -Wide-brimmed hat or cap
    -Bandana
    response:
  • Talk To Your Doctor

    If you have illnesses like diabetes, are taking medicines or are on a low salt diet, talk to your doctor about working in the heat.
    response:
  • Know Your Rights

    If you work outdoors, by law, your employer must provide you:

    -Enough cool, fresh drinking water throughout the day
