While not a new concept, climate change is increasingly relevant due to increases in extreme weather. One of the major effects of climate change includes extreme temperature variations. Specifically, higher temperatures have a direct effect on workplace safety and health. Details on the types of industries effected as well as acute health hazards will be reviewed.
This webinar will not only clearly illustrate the variety of challenges climate change presents, but also offer solutions on how to formalize a company response. The requirements of implementing a formal response plan will be reviewed. There will also be a breakdown of the most recent National Emphasis Program on heat stress and the status and potential effects of those efforts.
