Aug. 11: Protect Workers from Heat Stress During Heat Alert


In response to a heat alert, WorkSafeNB reminded outdoor workers to be mindful of heat-related risks. The Department of Health issued a Level 2 heat alert for St. Stephen, with humidex levels expected to reach between 40-44° C for a significant portion of the day. Employers should use the humidex as a guide to limit moderate to heavy work activities to cooler times of the day, such as early morning or evening.
