Workers are at a higher risk of on-the-job injuries, which for employers, means a higher risk of lost productivity and increasing costs.
According to a report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, workplace injuries are more frequent during the summer months of June, July, and August.
Between the three months, an average of 3,331.3 workplace injuries occur daily.
During the summer, more workers are performing job tasks while exposed to the outdoor elements such as construction, road paving, engineering, roofing, painting, landscaping, utility work and agricultural work.
However, indoor workers in chemical plants, foundries, HVAC and material handling and distribution warehouses work in hot conditions year-round that are often made worse in the summer months.
Workers that are laboring outdoors or in warmer temperatures must prepare for heat stress, prolonged sun, and UV ray exposure, falling debris and dropped objects, storm-related weather, flooding, low visibility, dangerous road conditions, slips trips and falls, cuts and scrapes, allergies, sunburns, insect bites and stings to name a few!
