Heat Stress Exposure Control Policy

BENEFIT

Exposure to high temperatures, humidity and other hot conditions can cause heat exhaustion, heat cramps, heat stroke and other dangerous heat-related conditions. So if your workers work outside in the summer or in hot indoor environments such as kilns or bakeries, your company should have a heat stress exposure policy.

HOW TO USE THIS TOOL

You can adapt this Model Exposure Control Policy for Heat Stress based on the specific circumstances of your workplace and the requirements of your jurisdiction’s OHS laws.
