Workers that perform outdoor work in low temperatures or artificially cold conditions are at a high risk of cold-related injuries and illnesses. Some industries require employees to work in cold environments for an extended period, leaving them exposed to harsh temperatures where cold stress can be easily encountered. For such organizations, it is essential to gauge the workers' exposure to such cold-related hazards and provide them with sufficient training and protection, to ensure a risk-free work environment.
Cold stress occurs when heat leaves the body rapidly. Facilitated by wetness and dampness, it drives down the internal body temperature where a body is unable to warm itself. This can lead to cold-related injuries and illnesses which may result in permanent tissue damage or even death. This course highlights various factors of cold stress related injuries which the learner will be able to identify, policies and practices that ensure protection for the workers from cold and the proper protective equipment workers can use. The course will also enable the learners to determine how, together with their employers, they can greatly reduce the related health risks associated with cold-related hazards.
