Abstract
While summer is prime time for landscapers, it also introduces a number of seasonal hazards. Outdoor work exposes contractors to extreme heat and ultraviolet radiation, as well as the risk of contact with venomous animals and poisonous plants. Taking the right precautions, however, can keep you and your employees safe and healthy.
