Heat Protection Advice for Postal Workers

summer postal uniformsIt’s hot outside, and postal workers are among those who are forced to endure the unpleasant conditions. As a postal uniform vendor, we are often asked for lighter-weight, moisture-wicking uniforms, or other options that can help the letter carriers be more comfortable on the job. Because we provide primarily postal regulation uniform products that meet the uniform guidelines, our options are relatively restricted. We do, however, recommend lighter-weight uniform items, as well as summer headgear.

Click here for our summer postal uniform suggestions.

In addition, Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s Campaign to Prevent Heat Illness in Outdoor Workers has provided a great amount of advice on the subject, including the following tips to prevent heat related illness and fatalities:

  • Drink water every 15 minutes, even if you are not thirsty.
  • Rest in the shade to cool down.
  • Wear a hat and light-colored clothing.
  • Learn the signs of heat illness and what to do in an emergency.
  • Keep an eye on fellow workers.
  • “Easy does it” on your first days of work in the heat. You need to get used to it.
