CRYSTAL CLEAR FACTS
Water is pivotal to workers and their safety. Your body needs water, and what better way to keep your business a float than to fuel your hard workers with the essentials.
How much water daily do you need?
The brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.
Generally, an adult male needs about 3.2 quarts per day while an adult female needs about 2.3 quarts per day.
- Provide plenty of cool drinking water and disposable cups in convenient, visible locations close to the work area.
- Actively encourage workers to drink small amounts of water often (before they become thirsty). They should drink about 4 cups of water every hour while the heat index is 103 to 115°F. Workers will need the greatest amount of water if they must work in direct sunshine, during peak exertion, and during the hottest part of the day. Under most circumstances extended hourly fluid intake should not exceed 6 cups per hour or 12 quarts per day. To maintain worker hydration, it is particularly important to reduce work rates, reschedule work for a time when the heat index is lower, or enforce work/rest schedules when work must continue during periods of extreme risk for heat-related illness.
- Respond to heat-related illness and medical emergencies without delay.
- Workers who show symptoms of heat-related illness need immediate attention. Treating milder symptoms (headache, weakness) early by providing rest in a shaded area and cool water to drink can prevent a more serious medical emergency. Call 911 immediately if a worker loses consciousness or appears confused or uncoordinated. These are signs of possible heat stroke. Heat stroke is fatal if not treated immediately.
