Train workers and supervisors about how to help spot, treat and prevent heat stress.

Allow workers to get used to hot environments by gradually increasing exposure.

Provide plenty of cool water in convenient, visible locations around a work area.

Schedule frequent work breaks in shaded or air-conditioned recovery areas.

TIPS TO KEEP YOUR FACILITY COOL

Make sure to clean air conditioning ducts.

Weather-strip doors and windows to keep the cool air in and hot air out.

Install awnings, shades, blinds, reflective coatings or other measures to reflect the sun.

Irrigate foliage around the building to reduce fire risk.
