Stay Safe on the Job During Summer Heat and Storms

Wednesday, July 28, 2021
With the summer here we are well into the unsettled weather that goes from sweltering heat to massive storms in just a matter of hours. I want to thank everyone for the work that they have done over the past few weeks as storms have rolled through the area.
It is also important to remember to take proper precautions when it comes to heat. Drink water before you are thirsty and stay hydrated. Also, look for signs among your brothers and sisters on the job of heat-related illness. The IBEW has put out a good guide for ways to stay safe on the job and signs to look out for that might indicate that one of your co-workers is getting overheated.
