As it becomes late in the season, there is a tendency for foremen and managers to have their employees give up their breaks in order to complete a job. It may seem to make sense to give up your break for the sake of production, but actually it can slow down your production if you don’t take a moment to rest and give your body proper nutrition. Plus – failing to take scheduled breaks can increase your irritability and the chances of an accidental injury. We encourage employees everywhere to stop for a scheduled morning, afternoon, and lunch break – especially if the work you do is somewhat dangerous. You will feel better, work safer, and have better camaraderie with your co-workers.
