We're 'Havin a Heatwave
A part of our business requires employees to work outside for extended periods of time, doing manual labor, lifting, etc. We are experiencing a heatwave in the Mid-Atlantic right now and have provided crew trucks with water coolers, and advised that workers take frequent breaks in the shade to cool off, but are still having employees fall ill due to the heat.
Does anyone have suggestions for other materials, tricks, or ways in which we can help our employees avoid heat exhausition? It is becoming a real problem, and there is little chance for relief in the near future.
