Course overview

Some of us work in hot conditions, whether outdoors or indoors. Two things we need to be aware of and prevent when working in hot conditions are heat stress and, an even more serious version of this, heat stroke. In this course, we'll walk through the symptoms of both conditions and discuss what happens to the body as your internal temperature rises. We'll also go over how to respond when you or a coworker experience the warning signs of heat stress and heat stroke.
