Heat Stress Awareness and Prevention

Heat Stress Awareness and Prevention (17 min.) Every year, too many workers are hospitalized or die from heat-related illness. Our body is covered with 22 square feet of skin. The skin protects our bodies from infections and injuries and cools our body's internal engine - something like a giant radiator with 2.6 million sweat glands. At the underside of our brain is the hypothalamus which regulates body temperature and the release of hormones.

Should we become dehydrated and overheated; the hypothalamus may malfunction making us unable to control our core body temperature. The result is often death if not recognized and treated immediately.

Topics included in this safety video are: sweating, relative humidity of the air, personal risk factors types of heat illness including heat cramps, treatment for heat cramps symptoms, heat exhaustion, treatment for heat exhaustion symptoms, heat stroke, preventing heat illness, acclimatization, training, supervisory responsibilities including weather, shade, fluids, and emergency procedures.

Program comes with a CD-ROM of written materials, including test questions and answers. English title also includes PowerPoint presentation.
