Prevention of heat stress is critical. Workers need to understand what it is and how it affects their health and safety. Exposure to extreme heat can result in occupational illnesses such as heat-related stroke, exhaustion, cramps, rashes, etc. Heat can increase the risk of injuries and burns. Outdoor workers and those in hot environments, such as firefighters, bakery workers, farmers, construction workers, miners, boiler room workers, and factory workers, are all at risk. Extreme heat is particularly hazardous to workers 65 or older and those who are overweight, have heart disease or high blood pressure or take medications.
