Summer is here and the temperatures are soaring so maintaining safety throughout summer will involve some added safety measures.

Take into consideration the controls needed to keep workers safe in the heat, beginning with rescheduling strenuous, outdoor work for the coolest time of the day and rotating shifts so one worker isn’t exposed more than others.
