As temperatures rise, so do two additional risks:
1. Safety. Summer months are traditionally the worst months for on-the-job accidents. That's because the heat can impair employees' judgment and more employees cover for vacationing co-workers in unfamiliar jobs. Now's a good time for a safety refresher.
2. Attendance fraud. Remind supervisors to stay on the lookout for employees who feign illness or injury. Such shenanigans peak in summer as employees try to extend vacations and snatch a few extra days of nice-weather fun. When in doubt, require a doctor's note.
