The Dangers of Dehydration

Did you know that by the time you feel thirsty, you're probably already 2 glasses below your normal water needs? Hydration is important ALL the time but especially at this time of year for us here in Arizona. 

Take a look at the diagram below to see the affects of dehydration on our bodies.

If you think you haven't been consuming enough water lately and are concerned about dehydration. Look at the symptoms below and decipher whether you need to drink a couple more glasses of water. If you are ever in doubt, seek medical attention immediately for anybody who may be experiencing a heat-related illness.

  1. It seems like any potential danger on the work site becomes the employer's responsibility. I'll bet workers in AZ are given buckets of water when they are working construction. Workers compensation attorneys in each state have to be very familiar with the laws regarding common hazards, whether the southern sun or the Minnesota snows.
