Why do my health insurance premiums not reflect this? If I retreat further into the cave, can I boost my discount?
 
2012-05-08 05:16:16 PM
Being that CNSNews only publishes stuff that is 1) pro right-wing and 2) anti Obama, what is their take away from this? That worrying about heat stroke is for pussies? Only commies take frequent water breaks? Jesus discs and SavBlood(TM) are enough for private industry, so they should be good enough for those heathen public employees?
 
2012-05-08 05:16:40 PM
The shingle-aroes don't seem to mind the heat.
 
2012-05-08 05:16:56 PM
Big government socialists are at it again, robbing us of our freedom to die of heat stroke. Another nightmarish day in Obama's America.

Did you know that breathing air has a 100% fatality rate?

I'm about to start a job where I'll be working outside for 10 hours a day. Good-bye, everyone.
 
2012-05-08 05:18:21 PM
Working outside might kill me.. but if I was to work indoors I'd kill myself.
 
2012-05-08 05:19:28 PM
... as can working indoors.
 
2012-05-08 05:22:20 PM
Look, the outdoors is FULL of hazards. Sometimes, electricity comes shooting out of the sky at random intervals, and occasionally there are things like pollen and birds!
All that, not to mention BEES!

I love it when one of my cube-dwelling mates hangs it all up and decides he's never working a desk job again. I spent my college years installing lawn sprinkler systems and, let me tell you, desk jobs are great. There's air conditioning, the internet is right there, you don't need to shower when you get home... it can't be beat.

Here in Arizona now that it's gotten hotter I've already seen the first few overheated cars of summertime. Give it a month or two and wait for the experienced hikers die or have to be rescued because they didn't bring enough water. People constantly underestimate how much water they will need.

Don't worry it's just a dry heat.
 
2012-05-08 05:26:10 PM
I don't understand the point of this article. Am I supposed to be outraged about something here?
 
2012-05-08 05:27:27 PM
Maybe if farkers would quit trying to haul comapnies and each other into court over stupid shiat that everybody should already know...

"We're suing Toro for fifty million dollars for not warning us about mowing our two acres when its 95 outside!"

We wouldn't need campaigns like this.

For the price of a beer I could have told you this.

2012-05-08 05:28:23 PM
This is OSHA, not Obama. And it is a sad state of affairs to NEED the government to tell anyone that hot is bad and potentially dangerous. I'm all for workplace safety but we don't tax dollars on PSAs about the farking heat.

and it is even sadder that some one would try to politicize this with a douchebag headline. yea I'm looking at you Susan Jones. We don't need you on our side. DIAF thank you.
 
2012-05-08 05:28:36 PM
Anyone else remember when Dana Perino said that the Bush Administration's stance on Global Warming is a good thing because of the number of people that "die from the cold" in winter?

Wait, experienced hikers needing to be rescued? Where are they going, exactly?
 
2012-05-08 05:29:27 PM
Too bad someone like Subby wasn't directing the wars in the Iraq and Afghanistan. If all our troops would have died of heat stroke in the first 30 days we could have saved a lot of money by simply denying them water and shade while our losses mounted and we quickly surrendered.
 
2012-05-08 05:32:09 PM
Last Summer during our record heat wave, at least 33 illegals died trying to cross the border.

Link


At least 6 high school football players croaked in the South.

Link

And a football coach...

Link


Numerous civilians died across the state, there are too many articles to link.
Considering that the heat wave and accompanied drought was the hottest in 75 years, I can see why the Labor Dept. would be concerned.
So yeah, heat can kill you.
It's all President GlobalWarmingbama's fault.

It's easy for people (esp for people who don't live in the desert) to fail to realize how much water they're losing when they don't get sweaty because the humidity is low enough that sweat evaporates instantly.

I wonder how much "water, rest, and shade" migrant farm workers get?

I know. This is just sad and pathetic.

Oh know! Obama wants you to be aware of the dangers of heat stroke! Socialisms!

Just outside of Phoenix? Are they a good spot to go backpacking? I promise I know how to handle the heat.

Notice there are no Fox News internet tough guys who died of heat stroke while venting outrage from their mommy's basements in those statistics?

Man, you don't want to go up there. There's crazy people who will kill you to keep you from the gold. WHAT GOLD, you ask? I can't tell you, or I'd have to......well, you know.

FTFA: "Let's Move," says the Obama White House. But Obama's Labor Department is telling some workers to slow down.

ZOMG the Obama administration contradicts itself! Everything they say and do is bad! Derp.

/Mods, stop approving CNS links. kthx.

/BTW, outside? Stupid? No water? No precautions? Well, then, please die. And decrease the surplus population!

Heh, it's easy for me to tell when I'm dehydrating because I FREAK OUT over the smallest thing. I'm filled with a terror that is obviously completely irrational. I've experienced this twice, and the second time I was able to quickly recognize the panic attack as a sign of dehydration and take appropriate action. Half a sports-drink later and the screaming anxiety went away like a switch was flipped.

You're supposed to be outraged about EVERYTHING. At ALL TIMES.

It's beautiful there, but those mountains will kill you at the slightest opportunity. Dehydration, falls, rattlesnakes, getting lost in the hundreds of side canyons, zero cell reception, the little available surface water is usually tainted, etc.

I've been working outside (construction & forestry) and their point about water is well taken. It's better now, with the OSHA requirements for job-site toilets, but drinking lots of water used to be a real problem on construction sites...except for the drywallers.
 
2012-05-08 06:17:51 PM
At least working outside means I don't have to wear pieces of flair on some stupid uniform. You know, the Nazis had pieces of flair that they made the Jews wear.

Heat stroke isn't anything to fark with,ever seen the heat induce seizures in an epileptic? What's the big farking deal about this considering I read about an infant being left in a car for 20 minutes in 80 degree weather where I live?

Wait, wasn't it just a few weeks ago that working at a desk was supposed to kill me? We clearly need to invent new places to work.

Their take is probably "big government telling people what to do is evil."

I'm an office dweller, and I would love to work outside. I spent my teenage days and some of my 20's working in all kinds of conditions, doing rural surveying work. I love the cold, the wind, the rain - I now spend my days looking out my office window wondering how I might best get back into the elements.
