Tips for Working Outside in Florida During the Summer

According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration, occupational heat exposure kills and injures thousands of workers each year in the United States. Working outside and working in occupations where conditions inside create extreme working environments (i.e. boiler rooms, bakeries, ceramic plants, glass production, etc.) substantially increases the risk for heat-related illnesses. Steps must be taken to protect workers from extreme heat.
