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.

Other aspects to consider include UV protection, keeping hydrated, being aware of insects and creatures that come out during summer, storing lunches safely to prevent food poisoning, fire safety as much of Australia goes through bushfire season and the appropriate lockdown practices during the weekends and public holidays.
