Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when
possible. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational

rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone
overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.
