APA (NSW) Member Update
Tuesday 10 January 2017
This week is going to be quite hot across NSW. If you haven’t seen the various news reports, maybe you have been outside and felt the heat! The heat will peak tomorrow with many parts of the state to be above 40 degrees, including some areas of Sydney.
APA (NSW) reminds Paramedics to stay hydrated and keep as cool as possible.
APA (NSW) has previously highlighted that the inadequate uniform that is currently being issued can pose a WHS risk in hot temperatures. While NSW Ambulance attempts to find a resolution, and provide appropriate uniforms to eliminate this risk, we remind members that APA (NSW) has recommended measures that members can take to minimise the impact of the heat.
