Working outdoors on hot days

Working outdoors on hot days? Heatstroke is the most severe type of heat exhaustion, often resulting from exercise or heavy exertion in hot environments combined with inadequate fluid intake. When working in the heat, heed the warning signs of heat exhaustion and get out of the heat before a serious problem develops. What makes heatstroke severe and potentially life-threatening is that the body’s normal mechanisms for dealing with heat stress, such as sweating, aren’t working properly. Take these steps to reduce your risk of heat-related injury if you work outdoors in hot weather. Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing. Drink plenty of fluids, even if you are not thirsty. A good rule of thumb is to drink two to four 8-ounce glasses of cool fluids each hour. Avoid drinking alcohol or sugary drinks. Rest frequently in a cool spot. If possible, work with a buddy so that you can monitor each other for signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion, such as heavy sweating or a rapid pulse. If you have those problems, it’s time to stop and cool down. Signs and symptoms of heatstroke, the most serious kind of heat exhaustion includes: High body temperature, generally more than 104ยบ F, Cessation of sweating, Rapid and shallow breathing, Irritability, confusion or unconsciousness, Rapid heart rate and pulse. If you notice such signs or symptoms, get the person into a cool place and call your local emergency number -Mayo Clinic- By Anonymous from USA.
