Understanding heat safety is important for anyone working in a hot environment or those who are around work equipment that can cause burns and other heat-related injuries. Direct contact with hot objects can be avoided by wearing protective workwear, like gloves and welding masks. When you’re out under direct sunlight for long periods of time, wearing sunscreen isn’t always enough. Wearing safety sunglasses, breathable work clothes, and hats can help you stay cool and protected, and staying hydrated is one of the most important parts to avoiding heat-related illnesses.
