July 8: Reminder of Heat Stress Dangers
While many Albertans are enjoying the hot summer weather, the government reminded those who work in the heat that they should take precautions to avoid health risks. Workers need time to adapt to working in hot weather, which can take at least 4-7 working days. Heat stress can progress to heat stroke, which is life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention. See, Working Safely in the Heat and Cold.
