Summer Safety in the Workplace
Summer is a popular time for employees to take vacations and leave work early to enjoy the nice weather the season brings which changes the dynamic for the employees who are at work during this time.
Staff shortages and the state of mind of the workers left behind to cover the work can create new hazards that compliance measures won’t solve. Other contributing summer hazards include working in the heat, dehydration, and not wearing sunscreen.
This handout can be used in safety meetings, toolbox talks or distributed directly to employees to help maintain safety in the workplace this summer.
