Some jobs are not located in glamorous conditions. They do not feature air conditioning or cooling fans such as within an office building. We are talking about those who work primarily outdoors. It is laborious to work when the temperature is extremely warm, especially during the summertime. Arduous industrial jobs such as this include pest control exterminators, construction workers, mail couriers, farmers and other types of blue-collar individuals.
As the hottest part of the year arrives, many businesses are changing their operations to ensure their workers’ safety and well-being.

Most of the country is going to start seeing a warming trend, especially in the Southwest and South in the coming months. These states generally see temperatures in the high 90s and well into the 100s. Some areas compound these hot temperatures with high humidity too. The human body’s normal functioning temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. If you are exposed to these weather conditions, your body struggles with the suppressed oxygen levels of high humidity and the attempts to cool down from the increased temperature exposure.
Patio heaters have grown in popularity quite a bit over the course of the last few years. Because of their large heat output, restaurant and home owners alike turn to outdoor patio heaters to extend the use of an outdoor area for a few extra months, and in many cases, all year round.

After choosing a style of patio heater and picking out the perfect design to compliment the outdoor space, the only option remaining is the choice to go for electric or gas.

These temperatures may be comfortable for most of us, but for the athlete they can cause heat stress in combination with higher heart rate and rising body temperature. On the opposite side of the country, some sports teams are already playing in the snow and face the risk of hypothermia.
