With millions of people working from home, Covid-19 has taken a toll on the future. Even with lockdown restrictions easing, coronavirus will continue to have an impact on the way we live and work. The construction industry has taken a hit during the pandemic. Sites could remain open during the crisis, however, the effects of social distancing, infection rate, a shortage of supplies and increased costs still affected the trade. Now more than ever, it is crucial that businesses and their employees take the necessary measures to keep everyone safe.

When the weather is warmer, especially as we aren’t acclimated to it in the UK, it is particularly important to remind yourself of the symptoms of heat exhaustion and the ways to avoid it. Spending time either inside a warehouse or office where it may be warm or outside in direct heat can put you at risk of heat exhaustion.
