Heat Health Recommendations

Health & Safety Tips to Beat the Heat
  • Drink more water. Don't wait until you are thirsty. Avoid liquids containing alcohol or caffeine.
  • Schedule outdoor activities before noon or in the evening.
  • When temperatures reach into the 90s, a cool shower can offer more help than a fan.
  • Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing.
  • If you must work in the heat, monitor the condition of co-workers and ask them to do the same for you.
  • Rest often in shady areas or, if possible, in air-conditioned facilities.
  • Wear wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect yourself.
