UPS delivery drivers at risk of heat-related illnesses


An NBC News analysis of federal and state data found 107 reports in 23 states of UPS employees being hospitalized for serious heat-related illnesses since 2015. The company says it believes air conditioning would be “ineffective” in its trucks, and that it encourages drivers to “drink water” and “rest,” and provides employees extensive “health and safety training.”
