of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun,
and check up on relatives and neighbors.
To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and

in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency, call 9 1 1.
