Heat Warning in Effect for PEI

Posted July 21, 2022, 8:30am

A heat warning has been issued for all of PEI and is in effect now (Thursday) through to Sunday with maximum daytime temperatures ranging from 28 C to 30 C, with a humidex range of 34-38.

Take extra precautions when working outdoors. Stay hydrated, take breaks, get shade when possible, and monitor for warning signs of heat stroke. Stay Safe!

During the summer season, many Island workers spend a significant amount of time working outdoors. As a result daily exposure to the harmful effects of the sun is common. Excessive exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause damage to the skin, eyes, and can also increase the risk of heat stress and heat stroke. Employers and workers must be aware of the risks related to sun exposure and the effective ways to protect themselves.
