Hot Work Training (Heat Stress)

Heat is a year-round job hazard in some workplaces. During summer months, employees have a greater risk of experiencing heat related illnesses. When a person works in a hot environment, the body must get rid of excess heat to maintain a stable internal temperature.  It does this mainly through circulating blood to the skin, and by sweating.

When the air temperature is close to (or warmer than) normal body temperature, blood circulated to the skin cannot lose its heat. Sweating then becomes the main way the body cools off, but sweating is only effective if the humidity level is low enough to allow for evaporation and if the lost fluids and salts are replaced.  If the body cannot get rid of excess heat, it will store it.  When this happens the body’s core temperature rises and the heart and breathing rates increase. When heat gain exceeds heat loss, symptoms of heat strain (the physiological response to heat stress) can develop. There is no specific standard or temperature for identification of heat stress.

Heat stress is largely preventable by engineering and administrative control methods. As a last resort or in extreme conditions, the use of personal protection is warranted. These measures include establishing procedures for acclimatization of new workers, training in safe work practices, reducing the duration of work in hot environments and providing plenty of drinking water. Workers and supervisors must receive adequate training and education to be able to recognize early symptoms of health disorders and seek timely medical help.
