WORKING IN HOT CONDITIONS

With summer months ahead, we are potentially looking at extreme heat for working conditions.


Working in hot conditions while performing physically demanding work can affect the body’s cooling system. If the body is unable to cool itself, a worker will experience heat stress, which if not recognized and treated can quickly lead to heat exhaustion and potentially death.


Early symptoms of heat exhaustion, such as irritability, lack of coordination, altered judgment and excessive fatigue can lead to issues with fitness for duty and serious incidents.


Workers exposed to hot environments must be trained to prevent heat exhaustion and to recognize the early symptoms of heat stress in themselves and their co-workers.
