Working or playing where it is hot, puts stress on our body's cooling system Working or playing where it is hot, puts stress on our body's cooling system When the heat is combined with other stresses such as hard physical work, loss of fluids, fatigue or some medical conditions, it may lead to heat-related illness, disability and even death When the heat is combined with other stresses such as hard physical work, loss of fluids, fatigue or some medical conditions, it may lead to heat-related illness, disability and even death This can happen to anybody--even if you are young and fit.

45 How We Cope With Heat Your body is always generating heat and passing it to the environment Your body is always generating heat and passing it to the environment The harder your body is working, the more heat it has to lose The harder your body is working, the more heat it has to lose When the environment is hot or humid or has a source of radiant heat (for example, a furnace or the sun), your body must work harder to get rid of its heat. When the environment is hot or humid or has a source of radiant heat (for example, a furnace or the sun), your body must work harder to get rid of its heat. Pg. 9

46 If the air is moving (for example, from fans) and it is cooler than your body, it is easier for your body to pass heat to the environment.

54 Acclimatization The longer you do hard work in the heat the better your body becomes at keeping cool The longer you do hard work in the heat the better your body becomes at keeping cool If you are not used to working in the heat then you must take a week or two to get acclimatized or used to the heat If you are not used to working in the heat then you must take a week or two to get acclimatized or used to the heat If you were ill or away from work for a week or so you can lose your acclimatization If you were ill or away from work for a week or so you can lose your acclimatization There are two ways to acclimatize: There are two ways to acclimatize: Pg. 10
