Heat Stress Prevention

Why This Course Is Essential

Heat stress occurs when the body cannot get rid of excess heat.

When this happens, the body’s core temperature rises and the heart rate increases. As the body continues to store heat, the person begins to lose concentration and has difficulty focusing on a task, may become irritable or sick, and often loses the desire to drink.

The next stage is most often fainting and even death if the person is not cooled down.

Factors that contribute to heat stress are high air temperatures, radiant heat sources, high humidity, direct physical contact with hot objects, and strenuous physical activities.

  • To understand understand what heat stress is
  • To know how to identify the different stages of heat stress
  • The control and prevention of heat stress
