The month of May has already given us a few 30 degree Celsius days. As we welcome the sun, we need to protect ourselves from heat exposure.


Working in hot conditions while performing physically demanding work can affect the body’s cooling system. If the body is unable to cool itself, you will experience heat stress, which if not recognized and treated can quickly lead to heat exhaustion and potentially death.


Early symptoms of heat exhaustion, such as irritability, lack of coordination, altered judgment and excessive fatigue can lead to issues with fitness for duty and serious incidents.


Workers exposed to hot environments must be trained to prevent heat exhaustion and to recognize the early symptoms of heat stress in themselves and their co-workers.
