YOUR TUESDAY TIP – 4 Summer Workplace Safety Tips for the 4th of July

4 Summer Workplace Safety Tips to Keep Your Workforce Successful 

With July 4th right around the corner, safety is the topic at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Particularly during the Summer months, hot weather and accompanying conditions can be a detriment to employee productivity and the overall success of the enterprise.

Here are 4 best practices to help you create a workplace safety environment under the harsh summer sun: 

  1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate: Dehydration poses an exceptional threat during the dry months of summer. Have cool, fresh water easily accessible to employees and encourage them to drink regularly throughout the day. 
  2. Conquer your productivity slump: Though summer is the season for vacation and relaxation, it is important to stay calibrated and maintain the ability to bounce back to productivity. Conquer summertime distractions and the urge to drop all tasks at hand by setting achievable goals for yourself and prioritizing your responsibilities. 
  3. Dress for success: Stay suited in clothing that combats the summer heat. Keep your cool by selecting lightweight, breathable fabrics that will maximize air circulation, allowing heat and moist air to escape.
  4. Relax: Due to the slow paced nature of the summer months, it is not uncommon to feel heightened levels of monotony, lethargy, and exhaustion. Whether it be a few hours, days, or weeks, grant yourself the time to step away from your everyday routine and rediscover your work passion.
