Heat Stress Recognition and Prevention

Each year more people in the United States die from extreme heat than from hurricanes, lightning, tornados, floods, and earthquakes combined. This course will discuss the effects of heat on your body, outline the risk factors for heat-related illnesses, and describe the associated treatments for each. This training will also explain several control measure techniques and safe work practices that you can use to prevent heat-related stresses. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. Learner objectives are to: describe how your body handles heat and what personal factors may lead to heat stress; identify the signs, symptoms, and first aid treatments of heat-related illnesses; and recall preventive measures that you can take to minimize heat stress.
