Heat Stress Safety Training

Employees who are exposed to extreme heat or work in hot environments run a high risk of heat stress. Left unmonitored, heat stress can lead to heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, dehydration, and even death. Those who work in confined spaces, unventilated areas, or buildings without air conditioning are at an even higher risk of developing heat stress. Construction, firefighters, kitchen staff, and anyone over the age of 65 are especially at risk for heat stress. Our heat stress training programs will help your employees avoid and treat heat stress before it gets too serious.

Hey Atlantic Training, my team does pretty well in hot temperatures. Why should we take your courses on heat stress training?

Heat stress doesn’t need a hot climate to occur. Employees can experience heat stress from working in confined, indoor conditions, or in areas where the air conditioning isn’t working. In more mild cases, heat stress can result in dehydration, heat rash, and heat cramps. In more serious cases, heat stress can lead to heat strokes and fatalities. This is why OSHA takes heat stress training so seriously. OSHA requires training around heat stroke and has suggested working restrictions designed to keep your employees safe. Age, obesity, high blood pressure, heart problems, and medications can all affect susceptibility to heat stroke. As an employer, it’s your job to provide training and mitigate the risks of heat stroke, even if you believe your workforce is not at risk.
