Cold Stress in the Workplace Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
When the body’s temperature drops below 98.6°F, the blood vessels constrict to keep the warm blood near the body’s core and vital organs to protect them. In doing this, the blood flow to the arms and legs decrease and those parts of the body become vulnerable to frostbite or hypothermia. This course will teach employees about the hazards of working in cold temperatures and how to minimize or eliminate those hazards. Employees will learn how to anticipate and identify the effects of cold stress and methods used to prevent it. This course is intended for general industry employees who, as part of their regular work duties, will be subject to cold weather conditions for significant periods of time.
