Every year, thousands of workers are adversely affected by occupational heat exposure, and many will even die. Though it is a common workplace issue, heat stress often goes unnoticed because most workplaces associate it with employees who work outside during the heat of the summer. But heat-related illnesses can and do cause major problems for individuals who are required to work in indoor work environments such as steel foundries, boiler rooms, bakeries, and even commercial kitchens. In fact, any environment that requires workers to be exposed to excessive high temperatures that are caused by radiant heat sources, contact with hot objects, strenuous physical activities, high humidity, etc. can increase the potential for heat-related illness.

Please join us as we examine how and why excessive heat in the workplace can pose such a serious threat to workers and explore a few precautions you can take to prevent this threat to you and your workers’ health.
