Cold Stress

Cold stress in Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) refers to the adverse effects on workers’ health due to exposure to cold temperatures. It encompasses conditions like hypothermia, frostbite, and trench foot, which can occur when working in cold environments. OHS protocols emphasize the need for risk assessments to identify potential cold stress hazards and implementing measures to control exposure, such as providing warm clothing, adequate breaks in heated areas, and limiting outdoor work duration in extreme cold. Worker training on recognizing symptoms of cold stress and encouraging self-monitoring for early detection are crucial aspects of OHS strategies to prevent cold-related injuries and illnesses in the workplace.
