Training staff to be aware of the dangers from heat is an important step towards keeping them safe.
This training includes a specific section for supervisors, so they can be aware of how to assist employees in keeping safe during dangerous heat.
Included in this heat awareness training is the signs of heat stress:
- Heat Rash
- Heat Cramps
- Heat Exhaustion
- Heat Stroke
Raising awareness of these conditions will assist employees in seeking care before their conditions worsen, and they end up in a dangerous predicament.
This training should be partnered with a quality heat stress policy, which the EHS Center has available here.
This training should be administered in a presentation, with an opportunity to answer questions to be most effective, but sections can also be used at huddles to continually remind employees of the dangers that heat can present.
