With much of the rain, drizzle and fog season behind us, we’re all looking forward to more warmth and sunshine.

Working in the sun and heat – even when skies are partially overcast – requires a few precautions:

  • be sure to use a good sunscreen and reapply often;
  • wear CSA approved outdoor or indoor/outdoor safety glasses, as applicable;
  • keep the sun off your head (wear your hardhat);
  • wear light, breathable clothing; drink plenty of water;
  • and take rest breaks as needed.
