Risk tip of the week

Keeping your cool this summer

If your employees work outside in the summer heat, watch for and take steps to prevent heat-related illnesses such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

During physical work or exercise in high heat, muscles generate heat as a metabolic byproduct. Sweating is an effective means of dissipating heat when the air is dry or when there is a breeze. However, when the humidity rises and the air becomes denser, sweat does not evaporate from the skin as readily. The body temperature rises too high, resulting in heat-related illnesses.

For tips on recognizing the symptoms of these problems, proper treatment, and ways to prevent heat stress, call the program administrator for GlassInsure at 800/640-7601, and ask for “Keeping Your Cool This Summer.”

 GlassInsure, NGA’s sponsored insurance program, provides workers’ compensation, employee benefits, general liability, and all lines of property-casualty insurance for the glass industry, www.glassinsure.com.
