Working in Hot Environment

Workers who are exposed to extreme heat or work in hot environment may be at risk of heat stress. Heat stress can result in heat disorders such as heat stroke, heat exhaustion, or heat cramps. As such, it is important for employers to be able to identify symptoms of heat disorders, and determine the level of thermal stresses that workers are exposed to.

This Bulletin provides information on managing heat disorders, and the assessment of thermal stresses associated with work in a hot environment.
