Becoming over-heated is a natural risk for construction workers who physically work outdoors in extreme heat or cold or inside a building with no airflow. This course shows workers how heat and the body’s cooling system can trigger heat-related illnesses such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. All of which can lead to serious health conditions which can damage the internal organs, including the brain, and can even be fatal.
Through this course, workers learn how to prepare for working in adverse environments, how to recognize and mitigate the initial symptoms of over-heating, and what to do in the event heat-related illnesses accelerate causing further physical harm.
Use this course to teach your team how to recognize the signs of heat stress and how to prevent and treat the symptoms before they become a threat to one’s health and well-being.
