This training course aims to give trainees knowledge and understanding in outdoor work heat and UV exposure and allows trainees to view realistic scenes and be tested on their knowledge retention. Working outdoors in the heat and sun can result in serious illness, and even death, if the proper precautions are not taken. From heat stroke and heat exhaustion, to skin cancer, outdoor workers are particularly vulnerable to the health and safety hazards presented by an often-unpredictable work environment. This training course is suitable for all levels and highlights the fundamental concepts that enable outdoor workers to safely manage their exposure to heat, UV radiation and other hazards.
