National Safety Month
June is National Safety Month and the start of the summer season. Thus, the Office of Environmental Health and Safety would like to remind the CUA community to take precautions against heat exhaustion. In the United States, more people die from extreme heat than from hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes combined.

Please remember the following tips when outdoors:

¿ Avoid becoming overheated. Take a break from outdoor work or play every 15 to 20 minutes and drink plenty of water.

¿ Be alert for the early signs of heat illness: muscle cramps, intense thirst, headache, dizziness and nausea. Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or more, even on cloudy days. If possible, stay inside or in the shade between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
