Summer Safety Roundup

July 2, 2021
Make sure you're protecting your co-workers, your family and yourself from the hazards of the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.

Right now, it can feel like "summer days, drifting away." But as Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson realize, summer is more a state of mind, and if you’re not careful, you can get hurt.

There are so many joys of summer, but if not carefully watched, they can quickly turn into dangers. That’s true whether it’s a day spent outdoors with family or co-workers. We dug through the EHS Today archives to find advice on how stay cool and safe this summer.

Enjoy!
