Take the Bite & Sting out of Working Outdoors
Working outside puts workers at risk for countless hazards. One group of hazards that doesn’t get as much attention are biting and stinging insects and animals.
Often these pesky creatures are little more than a nuisance, but for people allergic to bees and wasp stings, that nuisance can mean a life-threatening situation. Mosquitoes, ticks and stray animals can carry disease such as Zika virus, Lyme disease and rabies. Some spider bites can result in pain and tissue damage and in some cases, can be fatal.
