- - Heat Stroke and Heat Stress information:

Exposure to extreme heat can result in illnesses and injuries. Heat stress can result in heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, or heat rashes. Heat can also increase the risk of injuries in workers as it may result in sweaty palms, fogged-up safety glasses, and dizziness. Burns may also occur as a result of accidental contact with hot surfaces or steam.

Workers at greater risk of heat stress include those who are 65 years of age or older, are overweight, have heart disease or high blood pressure, or take medications that may be affected by extreme heat.

Prevention of heat stress in workers is important.

 - Heat Stroke

Heat stroke is the most serious heat-related disorder. It occurs when the body becomes unable to control its temperature: the body's temperature rises rapidly, the sweating mechanism fails, and the body is unable to cool down. When heat stroke occurs, the body temperature can rise to 106 degrees Fahrenheit or higher within 10 to 15 minutes. Heat stroke can cause death or permanent disability if emergency treatment is not given.

Fainting

Workers with heat syncope should:

Slowly drink water, clear juice, or a sports beverage.

 - Heat Cramps

Heat cramps usually affect workers who sweat a lot during strenuous activity. This sweating depletes the body's salt and moisture levels. Low salt levels in muscles causes painful cramps. Heat cramps may also be a symptom of heat exhaustion.

Symptoms of Heat Cramps:

Muscle pain or spasms usually in the abdomen, arms, or legs.

First Aid for Heat Cramps:

Stop all activity, and sit in a cool place.

Drink clear juice or a sports beverage.

Do not return to strenuous work for a few hours after the cramps subside because further exertion may lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

Seek medical attention if any of the following apply: The worker has heart problems.

The worker is on a low-sodium diet.

The cramps do not subside within one hour.

Heat rash is a skin irritation caused by excessive sweating during hot, humid weather.
