How to Keep Your Employees Safe in the Summer Heat 


According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, June 2023 was the hottest June our planet has experienced in the 174-year global climate record. And with summer just heating up, it’s essential to start preparing for sweltering temperatures for the rest of the season. 

With these intense temperatures comes an increase in heat-related illnesses, which can range from heat rash to heat stroke and result in symptoms like blistering skin, dizziness, vomiting and even loss of consciousness. 

On worksites, these atmospheric conditions can pose a major threat to the safety of your employees, and it’s your responsibility to provide them with the resources they need to stay healthy on the job. 

Keep Employees Cool With Temporary Tent Structures 

One of the easiest ways to prevent heat-related illnesses is giving your employees an air-conditioned area to cool off in, but you may not have a space like this readily available on your worksite. That’s where Cotton Logistics comes in. 

We can supply, configure and install temporary fabric structures quickly on even the most challenging worksites, allowing you to set up a rest spot wherever you like. With access to a wide range of structure sizes, we can customize it to fit your workforce’s unique needs. 

And whether you’re looking for something that resembles more a break room or a full dining structure, we can help outfit your tent with temporary furniture to create an inviting environment for your team. 

Provide Fresh Water No Matter Your Worksite’s Location  

Dehydration is a major health concern, and it’s especially prevalent as people work and sweat in the heat. Providing this essential resource for your team can be difficult if the water quality at your worksite isn’t up to par. Fortunately, our potable water trailers allow us to deliver large amounts of water to your worksite to keep your team hydrated. We’re also able to transform seawater from a nearby source to potable water for your team to use so you don’t have to worry about transportation times. 

Chill Your Supplies With Portable Reefer Trailer Rentals 

Serving up fresh, cool and water-rich foods is a great way to keep your crew safe on hot worksites, but this requires refrigeration. If you don’t have the infrastructure in place to refrigerate employee meals or keep necessary supplies cold, Cotton Logistics can deliver our portable reefer trailers to your site. 

This summer, partner with Cotton Logistics to provide your crew with the resources they need to stay safe. Give us a call at 877-427-2947 or contact us today to learn more about turnkey worksite solutions.
