exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting
clothing when possible and drink plenty of water. To reduce risk
during outdoor work the occupational safety and health
administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in
shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat
should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an
