    Take steps to avoid heat stroke, stress as temperatures rise - By Kathy Gurchiek, SHRM Magazine, VA
    Heat exhaustion—primarily from dehydration—and heat stroke are the two most serious forms of heat-related illnesses, says the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration(OSHA). Heat stroke can be fatal.

    Between 1979 and 2002, exposure to excessive heat caused 8,966 deaths in the United States, with more people dying from extreme heat than from hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes combined, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
