People who work outdoors have to take special care during the very hot days of summer.  Here in Central Oregon, the number of excessively hot days are fewer than in other parts of the nation, and most of us are not acclimated to sizzling temps.  Penny Wolf-McCormick with the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (OSHA) says business owners must take into account the work conditions. "When you're out working, and you're working in the sun, and you're working on concrete, where you're also working with radiant heat, a lot of construction workers, we're talking about construction; they're ale wearing additional personal protective equipment. They might have a hard hat on or a vest, their heavy boots or gloves.  And all that equipment can add additional stress."  McCormick says outdoor workers must have frequent breaks in the shade, and have cool water or non-caffeinated drinks available.  She says if you see warning signs of heat related illness, such as being nauseous, light headed and the sweating stops, get medical help immediately.
