Summer is a great time to get things moving, especially when working outdoors or with limited shelter from the weather. However, it does bring some additional health and safety risks that need to be considered.

Some of the elements that has a great influence on our wellbeing during the summer is the excessive heat and/or direct sun exposure.

Not everyone adapts to these conditions in the same way and for some, it can have a more severe impact.

Our summer toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces where work is carried out during the hot months of summer.
