Best 3 Ways To Avoid Heat Stroke

Beware Heat stroke can sneak up on you

Our technicians work outside in many varied weather conditions.  In summer there are several conditions that can be harmful to our staff.  It is not always the obvious things (bees, hot surfaces that could burn,  scratches from branches) that can cause the most harm.   One danger to be aware of is Heat Heat Stroke. It is natural to lose moisture from the body in summer but on hot humid days* the body may not be able to evaporate enough moisture to effectively cool the body.

The most positive indicator of heat stroke is that the body stops sweating and skin feels dry and hot.
Other symptoms that may be present are disorientation, sickness and a throbbing headache .  If you experience any or all of these symptoms you should move into the shade, loosen your clothing, rehydrate with cool water and call for medical help.

Feeling tired, weak, dizzy, nauseous or sweating excessively are all signs indicating the onset of heat exhaustion which if ignored will become heat stroke.

Here are out Best 3 ways to avoid heat stroke:

1.  Wear loose, light coloured clothing made from a cool fabric ie. Cotton, bamboo etc.

2.  Drink cool water, roughly Two 500ml bottles of fluids an hour. 
       (avoid drinks containing caffeine or alcohol as they will dehydrate you.)

3.  Take frequent breaks in the shade.

Over 29 degrees with high humidity

Top Five Father's Day Gifts 2012

Stuck for Father's Day ideas, here's our top 5 gifts for 2012:

1. Case for iPad, Tablet, e-Reader

Dad probably bought one when he first got this iPad, Table or eReader, chances are that it has got scuffed over time. New designs and materials are being developed all the time to offer better protection and usability and you have to admit it's more original than a tie.  Our choice Logitech iPad Keyboard Case.

Lots of choices means there's something for every budget.  Tee Shirts, mugs, books, Boxed DVD sets.  Don't take our word for it have a look at

3.  HD PVR (Bell TV)

Ok we'll pretend it's for dad, even though we know everyone will love it. Easy to operate and with fully customizable favourites lists finding the programs you want to watch is fast.  Schedule the programs you want watch or record for later viewing. See what the fuss is about with a Bell HD PVR Receiver.

4.  TEF TEE Golf Tees

Not just any old golf tee, buy dad one the will improve his drive range. The Tef Tee has been proven to increase driving distance by 6.5 yards or more. If you were going to buy golf tees anyway compare the Tef Tee advantage.

5.  IGrill

We know dad loves to BBQ, we also know how important it is to him to cook everything just right.  The iGrill communicates with iPod touch, iPhone or iPad app and will alert you when food is cooked the correct temperature. iGrill thermometer available at the Apple Store

ASUS Taichi, Notebook, laptop or Tablet you decide

The Taichi, by Asus, is the the world's first dual boot, dual screen notebook/tablet. Choose Android or Windows 8, laptop or transform to the tablet screen.
"     This Ivy Bridge laptop has a fully-fledged (and likely ARM-based) Windows 8 tablet integrated into the back of the screen. You literally have two devices in one. The Taichi is clearly still in prototype phase, as exact specifications are still unknown. All that ASUS has said is that 11.6-inch and 13-inch versions will be released with IPS displays capable of Full HD. They will be based on yet-to-be-specified Intel Core processors.     "
