As summer heats up, remember to stay safe and protected from heat illness!

 

We’ve had recent heat waves in Knoxville and throughout the country, so now is a good time to refamiliarize yourself with signs, symptoms, and prevention practices for heat illness on the job and out in the summer fun. In the spring, we got with some P&J team members to go over important safety information as we encounter the heat of the summer. If you haven’t yet, please click through these videos to refresh your understanding of best practices to avoid and, if necessary, respond to heat illness.
