Heat-related deaths are a real threat to construction professionals. Construction work accounts for one in three job-related heat exposure deaths in the U.S., and the danger is getting worse with rising summer temperatures. In 2015, there were 37 heat-related deaths in construction, with most occurring in June, July, and August. 

In this course, you'll discover the risks related to heat exposure and working in hot environments. You'll learn about heat related illnesses (HRIs) and the precautions that can protect workers from heat stress.

We'll teach you about pre‐existing factors that can increase your personal risk of HRIs, how to recognize the major symptoms, and what steps to take next. You'll also discover your employer’s responsibilities regarding HRI Action Plans and Emergency Action Plans.

This course fulfills 1 hour of general elective credit toward earning or renewing your Site Safety Training (SST) card.

Once you complete the lessons and pass the 10-question final exam with a score of at least 75%, you'll get a certificate of completion right away. You get 3 attempts to pass the final.

Your employers MUST have a site-specific Heat-Related Illness Prevention Plan and an Emergency Action Plan. They also have to provide site-specific training on these plans.
