What can help prevent dehydration?

There is no doubt that you have to be strong and have tremendous physical stamina to work at a construction site. But even the heartiest construction worker can be undone by the summer heat. And it does not take long for the heat to take its toll. You can begin to experience the symptoms of heat stress after just a couple of hours of moderate work.

Workers' Compensation Board can help you get counseling

If you are a New Yorker who has been injured at work, you will likely be eligible to receive workers' compensation. Your compensation can pay for your medical care and help you get back on your feet. On-the-job injuries can sometimes take more than just a visit to the hospital and some medicine to heal.
