Heat & Cold Stress


Course Overview

The human body regulates its internal temperature, but under extreme conditions, this control mechanism can be overstrained. This course examines the balance between body temperature and the surrounding temperature and covers: gains, losses, acclimatization, equilibrium, and exchange of heat and cold. Participants will learn the health effects; assess hazards; monitor and control; and implement strategies to reduce temperature extremes.
