Thermal Stress Thermal Stress

Description

As part of a task to be performed internally or externally, some factors, such as industrial processes or the climate conditions, may expose workers to intense cold or heat. These extreme temperatures can have serious effects on the health of human beings. Heat strokes or chilblains are just some of the examples of the risks associated with these specific situations. It is therefore essential to be able to identify these risks and to know the preventive methods in order to avoid a worker from being exposed to this situation.
