Overview

Recognizing the symptoms of heat stress and knowing how to manage them is imperative to preventing costly workplace accidents and potentially fatal injuries or medical emergencies like heat stroke. This online training video exposes the risks of heat stress, and explains to workers how to prevent heat stress injuries and illness.

The human body can withstand warm temperatures by using its own built-in cooling mechanisms, especially the sweat glands. However, this important cooling function can be inhibited by our clothing, high humidity, and poor hydration. These are conditions that can regularly impact workers in uniform, working indoors or out, who aren't staying well hydrated and listening to their bodies.

This training course presents clear facts to educate your workers on the signs of heat stress and how to remedy it. You will even hear two real life stories about workers who were victims of heat stress accidents that were 100% preventable.

Train your workers with this online video to recognize the symptoms of heat stress and start adopting preventative practices today!
