1. The high temperatures are moderating, but it’s still summer – so remember to dress appropriately, drink lots of water and rest whenever necessary.
2. At least one volunteer enveloped a rash after handling rockwool insulation last Saturday. All volunteers are advised to wear long shirts, long trousers, and gloves when handling rockwool. Dust masks are also available.
