Heat stress and cold can pose a special threat to workers in a wide range of geographic areas. Many manufacturing workers must deal with hot and cold temperatures in their factories throughout the year. Outdoor workers face the threat of cramps, exhaustion, heat stroke and worse every summer. During the winter months, these workers must prepare for cold temperatures. This course explains what thermal stress can do to working people and discusses ways to avoid the many health problems it can cause.
This 2 PDH online course is intended for all field engineers as well as construction and site personnel interested in learning about how to prevent heat stress and cold stress.
