Work Well During Summer

It’s coming up to that time of year! Now the clocks have gone forward, it’s only a matter of time before we can all enjoy those long summer days. However, for those working outside, in physically demanding roles or on the road, the summer months can be an uncomfortable time to work in. So beat the heat with these top tips!

Keep hydrated. Make a habit of carrying bottled water with you where possible and try to drink as regularly as possible. It’s easy to forget to drink plenty of water, especially in the warehouse, or when driving long distances. So keep your water close by at all times!

Take a break! If the conditions are hotter than normal, it can be difficult to work at the same pace, especially if there’s no air conditioning! Pace yourself and take a break if necessary.

Stay safe in the sun! If you work outside, it’s easy to forget that during the summer months the sun can be dangerous. Don’t forget to apply sun cream at the start of your day, and during the day if necessary.

What time is it? If possible, you should try to stay out of the sun as much as possible between 12pm – 3pm, as this is when the sun is highest in the sky and can cause the most damage.
