Overview

As a worker's body temperatures rises, so does the risk for workplace injury. Heat stress can affect any of your employees, whether working inside or outdoors. The dangers of overheating can quickly escalate from cramps and exhaustion to full blown heat stroke - which kills 20% of its victims regardless of their age or health.

Do you know what your workers should wear and drink to maximize their body's ability to cool? This training course helps workers recognize the signs of heat stress and understand how to safely work under hot conditions.
