HEAT STRESS AND HYDRATION
 
Safety: Know Your Limits – heat stroke is life-threatening. Know the symptoms such as confusion, loss of consciousness, seizures, high body temperature, hot, dry skin and profuse sweating. Reduce your risk during the heat of the day – by working earlier or later. Allow time for water and rest breaks by drinking 2 to 4 cups of water each hour. This message is a public service brought to you by Farm Bureau and the U.S. Ag Centers and Farm Bureau as part of Ag Safety Awareness Week – March 3 through 9.
