Stay Prepared With Thorough Heat Prevention Training
Why Is Heat Illness Prevention Training Important?
In an effort to minimize the chances of workplace incidents, OSHA introduced their Heat Illness Prevention campaign in 2011 to help educate employees and owners about the effects and risks associated with working in hot conditions. Since its launch, millions of people have learned about the risks associated with heat, how to stay safe, and how to prevent heat-related illnesses from occurring.
At PAW, we aim to contribute to this initiative and reduce the amount of workplace incidents caused by heat by offering a comprehensive heat prevention training course for supervisors and employees.
Through successful collaboration with organizations like yours, we are able to educate staff members who work in hot conditions—whether they’re indoors or outdoors—about the many side effects that can occur because of heat. The more people we can reach and train through our heat related illness prevention program, the more successful we’ll be at reducing the chances of workplace incidents.
As an employer, it is your responsibility to have your staff members educated and trained in all workplace safety hazard areas including heat. Regardless of the employee’s physical well-being or age, anyone can be affected while working in hot conditions.
