Workers face increased health risks as temperatures rise

When the sun is scorching on a hot day, many of us move inside to get out of the heat. But if your job requires you to work outside, you don't always have that option – leaving you at risk of heat exhaustion and, in more severe cases, heatstroke.

Don't lose sight of your eye safety practices

"Our eyes are our windows to the world." It's a common, yet incredibly true phrase that we are all familiar with. Our eyes are remarkable and wonderful organs in our bodies. Through them, we experience and interpret the events around us, earn our livings, pursue leisure activities, and enrich our lives.

If you're exposed to eye hazards on the job, such as tools, flying objects, chemicals, and radiation, you're at risk of injury. In fact, 700,000 Americans will injure their eyes at work each year and that adds up to an estimated $300 million loss in production time, medical expenses, and claims.
