The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently announced plans to better combat heat exposure. On a scale of 1-5 (with 1 being most important and 5 being least important), where do you think heat exposure rates as a top threat to construction workers?

I think this one will depend a lot on where you live. Somebody in Arizona or Texas will have a much different view than someone in Washington State or Alaska. Here (no, not in the US), it can be a concern in the height of summer (we do occasionally get into the mid 30C / 90F range), but cold is going to be a much bigger factor (weeks in the -20C to -40C / 0 to -40F range)

Good point, Michael.
