How does it work?
Example of heat stress question: 'Is the workplace located outdoor?'. Example of control measure: 'Take heed of weather report. When the "Very Hot Weather Warning" is in force, enhance control measures, e.g. where practical, reschedule the work to cooler periods in the daytime (e.g. before 10:00 am or after 4:00 pm) and arrange the work at a cooler place; arrange more frequent rest breaks (e.g. appropriate break after 20-40 minutes of work), provide sheltered resting areas near the work location; provide workers with drinking water and remind them to take plenty of water and stay alert of their physical conditions, etc.'
