How to stay cool during hot weather

Download our helpful guidance to ensure you stay cool this summer.

As the weather gets warmer, there is a likelihood we will feel hot at work, especially if you are wearing PPE to protect against COVID-19 or working from home with no air conditioning. If we get too hot for a long period of time without trying to cool down, this can increase the likelihood of heat stress and overheating.

Heat stress occurs when our body’s means of controlling its internal temperature starts to fail. Air temperature, work rate, humidity and work clothing are all factors which can cause heat stress.

So what can you do to prevent this from happening?

Download our customer guide to find out how you can spot the signs and symptoms of heat stress and understand the steps you can take to cool down in hot weather.
