Protecting outdoor workers
With summer around the corner, many Ontarians are welcoming the warmer days. But working outdoors also presents many hazards. Working where it is hot can put you at risk for heat-related illnesses. Workers in certain areas are also at risk for infections that come from tick bites (such as Lyme disease); infections that come from mosquito bites (such as West Nile virus); and severe skin and eye reactions from handling of hazardous plants.
