F- HEAT STRESS PLAN

 Avoiding heat stress
High temperature and humidity stress the body’s ability to cool itself and heat lines
becomes a special concern during hot weather. There are three major forms of heat
illness: heat cramps heat exhaustion and heat stroke with heat stroke being a life
threatening condition.

 Heat Cramps
Heat cramps are muscle spasms which usually affect the arms, legs or stomach.
Frequently they don’t occur until sometime later after work at night or when relaxing.
Heat cramps are caused by heavy sweating especially when water is replaced by
drinking but not salt or potassium. Although heat cramps can be quite painful they
usually don’t result in permanent damage. To prevent them drink electrolyte solutions
such as Gatorade during the day and try eating more fruits like bananas.

 Heat exhaustion
Heat exhaustion is more serious than heat cramps. It occurs when the body’s internal
air-conditioning system is overworked but hasn’t completely shut down. In heat
exhaustion the surface blood vessels and capillaries which originally enlarged to cool
the blood collapse from of body fluids and necessary minerals. This happens when
you don’t drink enough fluids to replace what you’re sweating away.

The symptoms of heat exhaustion include headache, heavy sweating intense thirst,
dizziness fatigue loss of coordination nausea, impaired judgment, loss of appetite,
hyperventilation tingling in hands or feet, anxiety, cool moist skin, weak and rapid pulse
(120-200) and low to normal blood pressure.
Somebody suffering these symptoms should be moved to a cool location such as a
shaded area or air conditioned building. Have them lie down with their feet slightly
elevated. Loosen their clothing, apply cool, wet cloth or fan them. Have them drink
water or electrolyte drinks. Try to cool them down and have them checked by medical
personnel. Victims of heat exhaustion should avoid strenuous activity for at least a
day and they should continue to drink water to replace lost body fluids.

 Heat stroke
Heat stroke is a life threatening illness with
a high death rate. It occurs when the body
has depleted its supply of water and salt
and the victim’s body temperature rises to
deadly levels. A heat stroke victim may first
suffer heat cramps and/ or the heat
exhaustion before progressing into the heat
stroke stage but this is not always the case.
It should be noted that on the job heat stroke
is sometimes mistaken for heart attack. It
is therefore very important to be able to
recognize the signs and symptoms of heat
stroke and to check for them anytime an
employee collapses while working in a hot
environment.
29
Main Cont. : AL HABBAI CONTRACTING LLC

H S E MANUAL

The early symptoms of heat stroke include a high body temperature (103 degree F) a
distinct absence of sweating (usually) hot red or flushed dry skin rapid pulse difficulty
breathing constricted pupils any all the signs or symptoms of heat exhaustion such
as dizziness headache, nausea, vomiting or confusion but more severe bizarre
behavior and high blood pressure. Advance symptoms may be seizure or convulsions,
0
collapse loss of consciousness and a body temperature of over 108 F
It is vital to lower a heat stroke victim’s body temperature. Seconds count. Pour water
on them fan them or apply clod packs. Call 911 and get an ambulance on the way as
soon as possible.
 Anyone can suffer a heat illness, but by taking a few simple precautions, they
can be prevented:
Condition yourself for working in hot environments – start slowly then build up to more
physical work. Allow your body to adjust over a few days.
Drink lots of liquids. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty by then there’s a good chance you’re
already on your way to being dehydrated. Electrolyte drinks are good for replacing
both water and minerals lost through sweating. Never drink alcohol and avoid caffeinated
beverages like coffee and pop.

Take a break if you notice you’re getting a headache or you start feeling overheated.
Cool off for a few minutes before going back to work.

Wear light weight, light colored clothing when working out in the sun.
Take advantage of fans and air conditioners.
Get enough sleep at night

With a little caution common sense, you can avoid heat illnesses.
