Heat Stress

 

 

Course Training:

This class will teach you about people who are exposed to heat on some jobs, outdoors or in hot indoor environments and the problems with heat stress. Operations involving high air temperatures, radiant heat sources, high humidity, direct physical contact with hot objects, or strenuous physical activities have a high potential for causing heat-related illness. Workplaces with these conditions may include iron and steel foundries, nonferrous foundries, brick-firing and ceramic plants, glass products facilities, rubber products factories, electrical utilities etc.

Outdoor operations conducted in hot weather and direct sun, such as farm work, construction, oil and gas well operations, asbestos removal, landscaping, emergency response operations, and hazardous waste site activities, also increase the risk of heat-related illness in exposed workers.

The employer must ensure that each operator is evaluated to confirm that he/she understands the information provided in the training.
