Heat Stress

In conditions of extreme heat, workers can experience heat stress which can hamper physical performance and impair decision making abilities. Many heat-related discomforts and illnesses include heat exhaustion, heat cramps, heat rash, or even heat stroke. Signs of heat stress often go unnoticed or overlooked and should immediately be addressed.

Under such conditions the potential for accidents is very high. However, the hazards of heat stress can be avoided.  T. Harris Environmental Management Inc. can survey plant premises to analyze heat related hazards and recommend remedial programmes to alleviate problems.
