Safety is more than a state of mind or philosophical approach – safety is a responsibility that businesses have to each of their employees. The goal is for each worker to return home safely at the end of the workday. 

According to the National Weather Service, heat is the weather event that produces the greatest number of fatalities (ahead of flooding and tornado) each year. 

1. Be aware of temperatures >90°F 
Use caution when engaging in strenuous activity during extreme heat. It can do more harm than good. 

2. Acclimatization is key 
Allow time for the body to adapt to high-heat, high-humidity environments. 

3. Choose weather-smart attire 
Opt for loose-fitting clothing made from lightweight materials and lighter colors. This type of clothing will be more comfortable when you sweat, and lighter colors reflect heat more efficiently. 

4. Stay hydrated 
It is crucial for water to be accessible at all times during high temperatures. Do not wait until you feel thirsty. 

5. Schedule rest breaks 
Scheduling breaks allows your body to cool down and reduce the possibility of over heating. 

6. Implement a buddy system 
By monitoring one another for signs and symptoms of heat related illnesses, you can prevent serious injuries before they occur. Training in this area to identify the symptoms is worthwhile. 


Productivity is a crucial word in today’s business climate. It can be a contributing factor to a company’s success or failure. A cool working environment isn’t an extravagance. It is a key component to combating the toll heat takes on worker productivity. 

Studies show that when in-plant temps rise over 85°, output drops by 18% and accuracy suffers from a 40% increase in errors.
