How to Beat The Heat This Summer When Working Outside

The temperature is steadily rising and for those of us who spend most of the time outdoors, we need to be extra careful about heat protection or we risk heat stroke and heat stress, which could be fatal.

In Australia, more people are killed by the heat than any other natural disaster, with up to 80 per cent of heatstroke cases ending in death.

If you’re working in the direct sunlight, or even if you’re just working in the heat, remember to take the necessary measures to ensure your health and safety.

  1. Remain hydrated.
  2. Take breaks in the shade.
  3. Don’t forget your sunscreen.
  4. Be aware of weather alerts and look out for heat illness symptoms.
