Our recent heat wave was a reminder for all that keeping workers cool and safe on the jobsite is imperative. Every year, thousands of workers become sick while working in extreme heat or humid conditions. Regardless of physical condition, age, and tolerance, heat illnesses can affect anyone. Excessive heat can cause heatstroke or heat exhaustion, and just being overheated makes workers more susceptible to accidents or injuries.
