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.
