Summer Safety: Heat Illness

As the temperatures climb, it's good to keep in mind that the heat can make you ill. 

To protect yourself and others, be aware of these warning signs when outside in the heat working or playing: 

  •  headache
  • dizziness
  • weakness
  • mood changes (confused or irritable)
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • decreased or dark urine
  • light headedness or fainting
  • pale, clammy skin

If you experience these symptoms, move to a cool place immediately. Lay down, keeping legs straight and elevated. Apply cold packs or wet towels to cool off. Drink cold water. If there's no improvement, seek medical help. 

Safety is our #1 priority. We hope our Saftey Series helps you and those around you have a SAFE and HAPPY summer!
