Learning About A New Evidence-Based Tool: OHCOW’s Heat Stress Toolkit

Presented by:

Sudbury – Northern Region

Heat stress is a serious threat to workers. It occurs when the body is unable to get rid of excess heat, which causes the heart rate and core body temperature to increase, often leading to heat-related illness.

This session introduces tools in the Heat Stress Toolkit developed by the Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers Inc. (OHCOW) which helps you understand the heat conditions in your workplace, assess the risk of heat stress, and take action to protect yourself or your workers.
