Stay Cool in the Heat

Sign spinners work in all types of weather conditions so it’s important that our sign spinners are prepared.  Summer can be very unforgiving with temperatures up to 115 degrees in some our markets. We have a few essentials that you can use to make sure you stay cool this summer.

  • Don’t be afraid to sweat:Sweating is the body’s most effective cooling mechanism. The cooling occurs as sweat evaporates. In some cases, a fan can be used to move cool air into a room and help keep body temperatures down.
  • Stay hydrated

Drink plenty of cool water (on average one liter every hour) in hot weather conditions. Drink every 15 to 20 minutes whether you feel thirsty or not to replace the fluid loss. Avoid consuming caffeine and alcohol, which can dehydrate you. Also, make sure you drink at least liter of water at the beginning of the day to prepare your body for the rest of the day.

 

  • Know the warning signs

Heat stroke victims usually don’t recognize their own symptoms. Their survival, therefore, depends on their coworkers’ abilities to detect symptoms and seek first aid and medical help immediately. While the symptoms vary from person to person, they include dry, hot skin (due to failure to sweat) or profuse sweating, a very high body temperature (often exceeding 41 C), hallucinations, confusion, seizures and complete or partial loss of consciousness.

Signs of heat exhaustion include heavy sweating, weakness, dizziness, thirst, nausea, headache, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle cramps, and elevated body temperature. Heat exhaustion can quickly progress to heat stroke.

Take it Easy

  • “Easy does it” on your first days of work in the heat. You need to get used to it. Overworking yourself when your body isnt use to the heat can be very dangerous.

Wear a hat and apply sunscreen

  • The suns rays can be very dangerous for your skin. Wearing sun screen and a hat will help block out out the sun and ultimately protect you.
