Heat Stress Awareness course available

The Heat Stress Awareness course is recommended for all workers that are at risk of heat exposure, and for their supervisors to complete.

As the temperatures are anticipated to rise again this week, a new Heat Stress Awareness course has been developed by Safety & Risk Services to increase your awareness of the risk factors and associated heat disorders related to heat stress. The course will also identify controls to protect yourself against heat stress.

If you see someone suffering from too much heat, call 9-1-1 and help them cool off by applying water to their face and neck until emergency services arrive. You can also call 8-1-1 to speak to a nurse. Interpretation services are available on these phone numbers.
