October 9, 2009, Newsletter Issue #188: Heat Stress

Tip of the Week

Some employees working in hot areas, and wearing full protective clothing, have sometimes shown symptoms of “Heat Stress.” Heat Stress is characterized by symptoms involving either heat stroke or heat exhaustion.

There will be symptoms of headache, dizziness, moist skin, and the inability of the body to cool itself down. In severe conditions, it can lead to nausea and vomiting.

Therefore, it is essential to encourage employees working in full protective clothing to keep hydrated and wear light weight clothing to prevent these symptoms.
