Course Description

The weather is something that we all have to deal with, and it’s something we have no control over, whether it’s good or bad. Sometimes we have to work in very cold weather, or even cold indoor temperatures, which exposes us to potential stressors on our body. There are two major health conditions you need to be concerned about when working in the cold: hypothermia and frostbite. In this program, we’ll talk about each of these kinds of cold stress and injury and what you should do if you or a colleague experiences these conditions.
