Heat illness can occur indoors or outdoors during any time of year. If not prevented, heat illness can pose a serious risk to workers. Heat stroke can be fatal, and workers suffering from heat exhaustion may experience confusion and impaired judgment, making accidents more likely.

Heat illness prevention training plays an essential role in keeping workers safe, minimizing risk and maintaining productivity. At Hazmat School, we offer an online heat illness prevention course so you can recognize the signs of heat illness and take action to protect yourself and others.

Who Should Take This Class?

Cal-OSHA Heat Illness Prevention training is intended for employees who work outdoors in conditions that may induce heat stress and heat illness. Our heat illness prevention course is designed for all employees, including:

  • Construction Workers
  • General Industry Workers
  • DOT/Transportation Workers
  • Manufacturing Workers
  • Managers and Supervisors

Although this course is specifically designed to meet the training requirements of workers in California, anyone who works in a hot environment can benefit from the information provided. For the best protection, complete our heat illness prevention course before work in a hazardous environment begins.

Industries That Require This Coursehazmat certification

Workers are expected to complete tasks in hot environments in a wide range of industries. Sometimes, working in hot weather or around heat-generating equipment is impossible to avoid. Some of the industries that may require heat illness prevention certification include:

  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • General industry
  • Manufacturing
  • Transportation
  • Coaching and athletics
  • Landscaping
  • Firefighting

Course Objectives

Once you have completed our online course for heat illness prevention, you will be able to:

  1. Meet the training requirements of 8 CCR 3395(h) and the General Duty Clause for heat illness prevention.
  2. Demonstrate environmental and personal risk factors for heat illness including job function, clothing and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
  3. Demonstrate an understanding of the different types of heat illnesses, the symptoms of each, and when to report an illness to a supervisor and/or emergency medical services
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of what steps can be taken to prevent heat illness including employer-supplied equipment including water, shade, rest breaks, and first aid.
  5. Identify how acclimatization can reduce the impact of high temperatures.
  6. Understand how to work with emergency medical services if a heat illness occurs.
  7. Understand supervisor responsibilities including the same as employees, but also what action to take if an employee has a heat illness, emergency response procedures, and monitoring local weather.

What Regulations Does This Course Satisfy?

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not specifically require employers to provide heat illness prevention training. However, three states — Washington, Minnesota and California — have created their own laws governing occupational heat exposure. In California, Title 8 CCR 3395(h) requires employers to provide heat illness prevention training for both supervisory and non-supervisory employees who work outdoors. Our course satisfies this regulatory requirement.

In addition to meeting training requirements for employers in California, our course helps businesses across the country fulfill their obligations to their workers. The General Duty Clause of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 requires all employers to provide a workplace free from serious recognized hazards, including hazards related to heat exposure. Heat illness prevention certification can help minimize the risk to workers and keep your company in compliance with this clause.

Topics Covered

Our heat illness prevention course is intended to familiarize students with the basics of the Heat Illness Prevention standard. The course will also familiarize you with the basics of heat stress awareness, symptoms, illnesses, preventive measures and medical surveillance.
