As summer temperatures rise, the dangers of extreme heat in the construction industry increase. Heat stress is a major concern in the construction industry because of job site exposure to the elements during the extremely hot summer months. Between 1992 and 2016, construction workers accounted for more than 1 out of 3 of all occupational heat-related fatalities. The complexities that already exist in construction, such as working high off the ground with heavy equipment, make it one of the most dangerous industries to work in. The risk of heat stress in the sweltering summer season only adds to these difficulties. A day on the job should never be life or death for a worker.
