Warning Issued About Physical Labor in Coming Heat Wave

Weather

Due to the expected heat wave in the coming days, the Department of Occupational Safety Management of the Ministry of National Economy has published a multi-page information sheet on occupational health and safety rules to be followed in the heat on the ministry website.

The sudden high heat has an extremely stressful effect on the body of those who do physical work.

It wrote that the ability to regulate heat is also affected by age, body weight, physical fitness, general state of health, clothing, nutrition and medication. Working during heat waves puts an increased strain on the body.

High average daily temperatures combined with physical work cause excess heat production in the body, which increases the risk of heat damage, such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke.

Working in a high-temperature workplace environment can be associated with a lower level of mental alertness, a reduced level of caution and physical performance, the safety department added. The health and safety risk is particularly high for those working outdoors.
