Keeping Your Workers Safe in Jobs with High Sun Exposure

Extreme heat is serious business. And it can have dangerous consequences, particularly for those working outside and exposed to the elements, such as in the oil, gas and petroleum, utilities, and construction industries.

Millions of workers in the Middle East are exposed to heat in the workplace, and although heat-related illness is preventable, each year thousands of workers get sick from their exposure to heat, and some cases are fatal.

So, how can we help to prevent this? Join this 45-minute free webinar from MSA where safety experts will cover:

• Heat stress, a health hazard that endangers workers’ safety and productivity
• Factors contributing to outdoor heat-related illnesses
• Different types of heat-related illnesses
• How to help mitigate heat-related illnesses
• Examples of heat stress initiatives across the world
• PPE solutions to help reduce heat stress, such as PPE with cooling properties, such as the new V-Gard C1™ Hard Hat
• Useful resources
