Fun in the Sun

With summer finally on the horizon Canadians will be able to enjoy many outdoor activities and hours spent in the sun. It’s also important to remember to take safety precautions that come with spending time in the sun.

When you are outside in the heat one of the most important things to do is stay hydrated. Heat stroke is a very dangerous preventable condition that should be avoided at all cost. Other precautions that should be taken are to wear loose fitting light weight and light color clothing. In addition be wary of medications that affect your ability to stay hydrated and dissipate heat.

If you are spending the day outside it’s important to use proper sun protection or limit your time under direct sun rays. Remember that you can also sunburn on cloudy days too.

Whether you need that chiropractor after pulling a back muscle mowing the lawn or wakeboarding or prescription medications to help you conquer a bout of poison ivy, Corporate Care is there to provide you with your own custom Private Health Service Plan.
