Drinking water in the shade
This image shows an example of a safe work practice.
OSHA recommends that, on a hot job, workers drink a liter of water over one
hour, which is about one cup every fifteen minutes. The agency's program stresses water rest and shade. When taking a break to drink water, try to do it in the shade.
