Off The Record – Workers’ Comp – Heat Exhaustion

Video Transcript

Hi. This is Bill Turley from Turley Redmond & Rosasco and it is hotter than July out there as Stevie Wonder would say. So, what I want to talk to you today is about heat-related injuries on the job. So, if you’re out there working in any kinda manual work, construction, landscaping, anything like that, you’re gonna be exposed to the heat and the sun on days like this in July when it’s really, really hot. So, you know, you should take very serious precautions in weather like this.

Try to stay in the shade if you can, wear a hat, wear protective covering, sunscreen, and most importantly, drink plenty of fluids. Whether it’s Gatorade or water or, you know, just something to keep you, as we say, hydrated because around this time of year, we get a lotta calls about people who suffer heat exhaustion on the job. And again, it’s mostly people who work outdoors, who are doing a lot of heavy manual labor, exerting themselves physically.

So, it is something that you really need to be careful of and, of course, if you did suffer some kind of episode due to heat exhaustion, it would be covered under the workers’ compensation law. So, if you have questions about heat exhaustion in hot weather or anything regarding workers’ compensation, social security, disability, or veteran’s benefits, please give us a call at 631-582-3700. And you can also check us out on the web at www.nydisabilitylaw.com. This is Bill Turley. Thanks for listening and stay cool.
