Since safety is our No. 1 Company priority, it’s important to keep summer safety top of mind.
Whether you’re at work or at home, here are some tips to stay safe this summer:
- Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoiding caffeine. The minimum amount of water you should drink per day is your body weight divided by two ounces. For example, a 200-pound person should drink 100 ounces of water.
- Wear appropriate clothing and sunscreen. SPF 30 is sufficient, but it’s important to apply 30 minutes before going outside. You should also reapply every two hours or after swimming, drying off or sweating.
- Don’t leave children or pets alone in cars – internal car temperatures are much higher than they are outside.
- Keep a watchful eye on children around water and busy streets.
The 101 Days of Summer Safety campaign runs through Labor Day. It aims to keep employees safe throughout the summer. To track our progress, each division is displaying its crash and injury free days on this 101 Days of Summer poster.

It’s each of our responsibilities to know the dangers of the summer heat and what we can do to keep safe.
