Heat Stress Awareness:
Exposure to extreme heat can cause a myriad of health problems. Heat stroke and heat exhaustion are among serious impacts of extreme heat. The symptoms of both heat exhaustion and stroke develop quickly, so timely information on hot-weather precautions is critical. The Heat Awareness Card can help raise the awareness for this serious health threat and give information on recognizing the symptoms and suggests treatment for different levels of over-heated exposure.

Worker safety is one of the most important objectives next to profitability for most successful industrial companies. Special consideration must be given to the prevention and understanding of heat related illnesses, as well as the necessity for proper hydration practices. In the U.S over the past ten (10) years, according to the National Weather Service, there have been more heat related deaths, than all natural disasters including hurricanes, tornados and floods. This fact by itself is a startling revelation of the need for properly educating our safety managers and workers of the dangers in all working conditions during high heat temperatures.
