Tool Box Talk Heat Stroke Mobile App
The Tool Box Talk Heat Stroke is a toolbox talk app that addresses heat-related illness and heat exhaustion, specifically geared towards workers in road building and maintenance.
How does it work?
Heat illness and heat stress are quite dangerous conditions, and bringing up the symptoms and causes in a safety meeting are important in avoiding heat exhaustion, or spotting it early. Some of the symptoms identified in this app include hot, dry, flushed skin, seizures, absence of sweating, increased breathing, agitation, confusion, irregular pulse, decreased consciousness, shock, headache, nausea, vomiting, and cardiac arrest. As a meeting topic, this toolbox talk can help identify when a body core temperature is getting unsafe, and ultimately, can help to promote the safety and well-being of workers.
