Exposure to extreme heat can result in illness and injury. Working in a hot environment can cause heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, or heat rash. In addition, heat increases the risk of injury for workers because of sweaty palms, fogged-up safety glasses, and dizziness. Burns also can occur when a worker comes in contact with a hot surface or steam.
Take frequent breaks in the shade or in air conditioning.
Drink plenty of water – stay hydrated. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and sugar.
Recognize the signs of heat illnesses in yourself and your co-workers:
If a co-worker has signs of heat exhaustion: Inform your supervisor or all 911. Get the worker to shade and cool them down by removing clothing, wetting with cool water and ice, and fanning. Encourage frequent sips of water.

Eye injuries from dust and particles, welding light, and chemicals are common on jobsites. Often workers wear the wrong eye protection or none at all. Although some eye injuries are minor, even a simple scratch from wood, cement, or drywall dust can cause lasting pain. Metal slivers from a grinding wheel, or rebounding nails from routine hammering and carpentry can puncture the eye and lead to vision loss. Welding light can cause “welders’ flash” that burns eyes and surrounding tissue. Nearby workers and bystanders are also at risk. Work-related eye injuries can have life- long consequences.
