Taking the Heat off Your Employees
As the weather continues to warm up, many employees are already feeling the heat in the workplace, particularly when it comes to warehouses and manufacturing floors. Some particularly high profile companies have been in the news in recent years because of employee heat exhaustion. Cameras covered the Amazon warehouse facility where workers were being treated in ambulances in the parking lot for heat exhaustion. Part of the problem is that large facilities can be very difficult to air condition economically, leaving businesses to figure out how to handle the situation.
