Heat stress is an overlooked danger!
Although less than 100 workers die from heat stress each year in the United States, more than 3,000 US workers miss work due to a heat-related illness. Simply put, heat injuries occur when the body temperature reaches 104 degrees Fahrenheit or higher—exposing you to cellular damage in as little as 30 minutes.
The good news is that heat stress is preventable. And even if a worker suffers from heat exhaustion, the survival rate is 100% when rapid, proper treatment is administered.
This new eLearning course from LMS Courses will identify the causes and symptoms of heat stress and address what to do to avoid a resulting illness or injury.
