* Distribute workload evenly over the day and incorporate work-rest cycles for employees working in the heat.

* Provide cool rest areas in hot work environments, setting the area's temperature to at least 76 degrees.

* Keep water available always. Most workers exposed to hot conditions drink less fluids because of an insufficient thirst drive during labor. A worker should not depend on thirst to signal when and how much to drink.

* Protective clothing can help prevent the transfer of heat from the air to the body and allow sweat evaporation.
