Heat Illness Prevention

Various job-related factors can increase the risk of heat-induced illnesses, such as engaging in strenuous physical labor, operating in warm or hot climates, not being acclimatized to heat, and wearing work clothing that retains heat.  Additional personal risk factors are also discussed in this training.

It’s important to note that dangerous heat exposure isn’t confined to outdoor settings or solely to hot weather. It can manifest both inside and outside, in any season, if the circumstances allow it. A majority of outdoor fatalities—ranging between 50% and 70%—take place within the initial days of employment in heated settings.

This training course will provide the learner with a variety of methods to safeguard you from heat related illness, arm you with the knowledge of what signs to look for in yourself and in others, and how to respond in the event that you or someone you work with is showing signs of heat stress.

Online Heat Illness Prevention Certification

This fully narrated course is broken up into 4 separate units, with a knowledge check quiz at the end of each unit.  The quizzes will prepare you for the final, which you will take at the end of the course.

After passing the final with a score of 70% or better, you will be able to print a personalized certificate with your name, the course you passed, the date taken, certificate number, as well as our company information should anyone need to verify the authenticity of the certificate.
