Working in Hot Conditions

Working in hot conditions or a working environment with high humidity can be physically challenging and potentially dangerous.

To stay safe and healthy when working in hot environments, it’s important to follow some risk control measures, for example:

Heat Stress

Stay Hydrated

Drink plenty of cool drinking water and electrolyte-rich beverages to avoid dehydration.

Wear Appropriate Protective Clothing

Light-colored, lightweight and breathable clothing can help keep you cool.

Take Breaks

Regular breaks in a shaded or air-conditioned area can help prevent heat exhaustion.

Use Protective Equipment

If required, use personal protective equipment (PPE) such as hats, sunglasses and sunblock to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays.

Gradually Acclimate

If you are new to working in hot conditions, it’s important to gradually acclimate your body to the heat over time.

Know the Signs of Heat Exhaustion and Heat Related Illness

Symptoms of heat stress include fatigue, dizziness and muscle cramps, while symptoms of heat stroke include high body temperature, confusion, and unconsciousness. If you experience these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.
