Heat stress can become a life-threatening problem for employees who work around elevated temperatures and/or humidity for extended periods of time. If left unresolved, heat stress can lead to serious health conditions and even death.
Employees who frequently work in direct sunlight or inside indoor spaces where the temperature and/or humidity is high must receive training in heat stress prevention so that they may recognize heat-related distress and alleviate in due time.
This course in heat stress prevention is addressed, first and foremost, to all employees who are exposed to elevated temperatures and/or humidity for extended periods of time while at work. Furthermore, potential job candidates who wish to complete their CVs prior to employment can also benefit from this training program.
Industries where heat stress prevention training is frequently required include:
- Oil & Gas
- Logging & Forestry
- Automotive & Manufacturing
- Agriculture & Food
Since all employers are required to create a safe work environment for their employees, it falls into their responsibility to implement heat stress prevention training, especially in those industries where heat stress is a frequent risk.
Employees, on the other hand, are required to undergo and complete the training program, as well as make use of the strategies they learn in order to maintain their safety at work. What’s more, some job candidates prefer to independently acquire and complete the program to improve their CV and increase their odds of being hired.
To obtain this certificate, you must demonstrate a basic understanding of heat stress and the environmental conditions that can lead to it. In addition, you should be able to identify several illnesses that can result from prolonged exposure to heat, as well as present a set of safety precautions designed to help prevent them.
It is recommended that employees who are at increased risk of heat stress should complete this course every year. When left unchecked, heat stress can have devastating consequences, which is why it is important to be aware of the latest safety standards.
