During the summer months, it can regularly get above 90 degrees in Johnson City. This can pose a significant risk for Johnson City construction workers.

As summer approaches and temperatures rise, construction employers must safeguard their employees against heat-related hazards. After all, workers who spend extended periods of time in hot or humid environments are at greater risk of experiencing heat-related illnesses, such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heatstroke.
