When the temperatures are in the upper nineties and the humidity is just as high, you need to take certain precautionary measures if you work outside.
I do construction and mostly, I work outside.
I have a crew of people that work under me, and I try to make sure they are safe when working in these conditions. I learned the hard way, that if you don’t have good hydration and a place to seek some shade and/or air conditioning, you can put yourself into danger and it could become deadly. Heat stroke can happen quickly when you are dehydrated or overly hot. I make sure everyone wears a hat to keep their heads cooler. They have neck wraps that are frozen and wet, to keep their temperatures down. I always have coolers of cold water available and I make sure all of my workers take at least ten minutes every hour, so they can get out of the sun. There is a tent set up, and I have a portable air conditioners set all around the tent. If someone isn’t feeling well, there is a cot for them to rest. I have one of the best crews in our company and I believe it is because I give them the necessary things they need to keep them safe. The air conditioning and water is very important. Once dehydration occurs, death isn’t far behind. I’ve not lost a single person because of dehydration. I feel the air conditioning and water is the least I can do for those who work with me.
