Health and Safety

Tips for Working in Hot Weather

The sun brings special hazards for those who work outdoors. The combination of heat, humidity and physical labor can lead to death. The two most serious forms of heat-related illnesses are heat exhaustion (primarily caused by dehydration) and heat stroke, which can be fatal. Signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke need immediate attention. Recognizing warning signs and taking quick action can make a difference in preventing fatalities.

Working Outdoors is a fact sheet produced by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It offers precautionary advice on  working in extreme heat and ways of protecting against ultraviolet radiation, Lyme disease and West Nile Virus. It also provides informational links for teenagers working summer jobs.

OSHA's
Heat Stress Card lists tips and precautions against heat-related death and injury. Available in English and Spanish, this laminated fold-up card is free for employers to distribute to their staff members. It also offers quick heat injury-related references such as warning signs, symptoms and early treatment.

OSHA's
Protecting Yourself in the Sun is a pocket card that explains how to perform self-examinations to detect early stages of skin cancer. The card, available in English and Spanish, also describes common physical features of skin cancer that can be caused by sun exposure.

These publications can be downloaded from the
OSHA Web site or ordered by calling OSHA's publications office at 202-693-1888.
