Heat Stress: Real Accidents, Real Stories

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. Heat Stress: Real Accidents, Real Stories 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 natural cooling functionality can be inhibited by various factors, including: clothing, high humidity levels, and poor hydration. These are factors that can greatly impact workers in uniform, working indoors or out, who aren't staying well-hydrated or listening to their bodies while working.

This training course presents clear facts to educate your workers on the warning signs and how to avoid and remedy heat stress. Additionally, you’ll hear two real life stories about workers who were victims of heat stress accidents, that were 100% preventable.

Use this video to train your workers, so they will be able to recognize the symptoms of heat stress and start adopting preventative practices today!
