Avoid The Summer Heat With The Best Temporary Warehouse Structures Company
The high temperatures of summer bring on a lot of added risks in the workplace. Heat exhaustion and a range of other dangers are real problems. Taking extra steps to safeguard employees during the hottest months of summer is an excellent idea.
Beating The Heat With Temporary Structures
Temporary structures can do a lot to mitigate the dangers that high temperatures pose. Installing a tent on the job site gives workers a place to eat, work, or rest where they are spared from the harsh heat of direct summer sunlight. Temporary structures also offer real benefits to materials and merchandise; using them for storage keeps sensitive materials cool and safe. Tents can also serve protective purposes in more changeable climates. They deliver a consistent and comfortable environment that keeps employees productive in all sorts of adverse weather. There’s a reason why the military relies on tents and similar temporary structures to keep personnel safe and comfortable.
Any structure can be further enhanced for summer comfort by adding effective amenity equipment, such as HVAC systems and dehumidifiers. While HVAC systems are not as efficient in temporary structures as they are in fully-enclosed environments, they can still do an excellent job of regulating internal temperatures. Dehumidification equipment plays an important role in making temporary structures comfortable in warm, wet environments. Making the internal environment as comfortable as possible is an important part of preserving workers’ effectiveness and warding off heat-related illnesses.
Our inventory includes a range of different tops that can be installed on any temporary structure to mitigate summer heat. Translucent tops are excellent at capturing natural light and creating a comfortable work environment. This sort of top is particularly well-suited to warehouse and construction uses thanks to their efficient lighting capabilities and lightweight. Properly-made fabric tops can block harmful UV light while still admitting plenty of usable lighting. Fabric tops can also be made opaque, a form known in the industry as a “blackout” top. This provides maximum cooling, though it does eliminate daylight entirely.
Water services can also be incorporated into temporary structures that are erected in areas without convenient access to local resources. Tankers can supply the water necessary to deliver restroom, washing, and cooking facilities to workers in remote locations. Keeping workers cool and hydrated at all times is essential.
General Tips For Heat Safety
* Hydrate regularly. Steady fluid intake throughout the day is the best way to ward off heat exhaustion. Supply workers with ample sources of fresh drinking water.
* Wear the right clothes. Lightweight fabric in light colors will help your body regulate high temperatures. Dress code restrictions should be relaxed where necessary to cope with extreme heat.
* Protect the skin. Encourage all workers to apply sunscreen generously. Remember that shade and cover are the only guaranteed ways to avoid the most health-damaging ultraviolet components of direct sunlight.
