As we approach another warm Riverland day Safe Work SA is reminding local workers to play it safe in the heat.

Employers with outdoor work are reminded to take measures to manage the risks associated with heat stress and solar UV radiation as South Australia’s summer kicks off.

Employers can minimize the risk of heat-related incidents by modifying workloads and schedules to avoid the hottest times of day, rotating or sharing ‘hot tasks,’ increasing rest and hydration breaks and making sure rest areas in shady or cool areas are available.
