As another sweltering South Carolina summer drags on, it is important for construction owners and employees to keep safety in mind. The Department of Labor started Heat Illness Campaign to inform workers on heat illness prevention. This on the job hazard injures and kills thousands of workers each year, but is preventable. DOL recommends workers frequently drink water, rest in the shade, and report heat symptoms early on. Check out the link above for more information on the heat illness outreach campaign including worksite posters.
