High temperatures, humidity, direct sun or heat, limited air movement, physical exertion, poor physical condition, some medications, and inadequate tolerance for hot workplaces or areas can all contribute to heat stress.
To control this hazard, take precautions, be able to recognize the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and know what to do in the event of a heat-related illness.
