Health Tip: Working in Extreme Heat

(HealthDay News) -- Outdoor workers are more likely to become dehydrated and have heat-related illnesses, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC recommends that people working in extreme heat:

  • Drink water. Don't wait until you are thirsty to drink.

  • Avoid alcohol and sugary drinks.

  • Wear and reapply sunscreen.

  • If possible, work earlier or later in the day to avoid midday heat.

  • Wear a brimmed hat and loose, light clothing.

  • Learn how to spot heat-related illness.

If you feel faint or weak, stop working and get to a cool place.
