Although summer doesn’t officially start until mid-June, the weather says otherwise. It definitely feels like summer out there, what with the high temperatures, humidity, and sunlight. You might be a fan of the warm weather or you might prefer the indoors, but either way, it’s important to be prepared for the dangers you’ll face as a tow truck driver during the summer. There are a bunch of new risks to contend with. So, how can you stay safe?
With summer here, your thoughts might be focused on vacation, time off work, and fun in the sun. But there’s something else that we should all put some effort into – preventing storm damage from summer thunderstorms. Strong winds and heavy rains can wreak havoc on your house, but you can outsmart Mother Nature with the following tips.
When you were growing up, your parents may have hounded you about putting on sunscreen. At the time, sunscreen might have seemed like an annoying, greasy nuisance, but now that you’re grown up with kids of your own you understand the importance of sun safety. Sunburns and overexposure to the sun could cause skin cancer, which is the most common type of cancer in the United States. And make no mistake—skin cancer is serious stuff. It can be fatal. The CDC says that ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun can damage your skin in as little as 15 minutes.
With summer rapidly approaching, it’s crucial that your family makes sun safety a priority. Running around outside, swimming, playing sports, and working outside leave you vulnerable to those invisible (but very scary) UV rays, which, as we said, can cause some serious damage to your skin. To help you keep everyone sun-safe this summer, we’ll go over some tips for sun protection.
