BMSS : Uttara Adhunik Medical College Local Committee arranged Heat Forbearance : An awareness campaign for day laborers

As the scorching heat wave grips our region, it is crucial to ensure the well-being of day laborers who work tirelessly under the sun. Our campaign, “Heat Forbearance” aims to educate and empower day laborers with essential tips to stay safe and healthy during extreme heat conditions.

Key instruction would for the day laborer was-

We encouraged them to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Dehydration can be dangerous, so it’s important to stay hydrated. We managed to supply shorbot for the day. We have also advised them to wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing to help stay cool. Also suggested to wear a wide-brimmed hat which can also provide protection from the sun , encouraging them to take regular breaks in shaded areas to cool down and rest, suggested to work early in the morning or later in the evening when the sun is not as intense. Meanwhile we tried to educate them on the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, such as dizziness, rapid heartbeat, and confusion. Encourage them to seek help if they experience any of these symptoms and encourage a supportive environment where workers can look out for one another and recognize when someone may be struggling with the heat.

By spreading awareness and providing practical tips, we can help day laborers stay safe and healthy during the hot summer months. Let’s come together to Beat the Heat and ensure the well-being of those who work hard to keep our communities running.
