The body is a powerful machine, capable of performing massive amounts of work. And like any machine, when it's pushed hard, your body can produce a lot of heat. Whether you're outside under a hot sun or bundled up against the cold, you need to be careful when your body heats up. As it gets hot, your body has to work hard to prevent itself from overheating. Of course, the hotter the area where you're working, the harder it is to cool off.
If your body gets too hot, it can suffer "heat stress" and other heat-related illnesses such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion or even heat stroke. To help show employees that heat-related illnesses can occur in many environments, as well as what can be done to address these situations, this program is designed to present fundamental information on heat stress and similar illnesses.
