Construction Safety Avoiding Heat Stress Weekly Tailgate Topic (Canada) Mobile App
The Construction Safety Avoiding Heat Stress app is a safety app.
How does it work?
The sun and warm weather of summer can also bring special hazards for workers. The combination of heat, humidity and physical labor can lead to illness. The two most serious forms of heat-related illnesses are heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke need immediate attention. Recognizing those warning signs and taking quick action can make a difference in preventing heat illnesses and lower risk. This app features guidelines all employees should follow during the warm weather months for workplace safety.
A weekly safety meeting such as those included in the weekly tailgate topic series are helpful in promoting construction safety in the work place.
