What You Need To Know about Heat Stress Related Injuries

The summer months are here in the west. Temperatures are on the rise, often reaching the century mark for several days at a time. If you are required to work in the heat as school and commercial bus drivers, or bus mechanics, then chances are, if proper care is not taken, you could end up suffering from a heat related injury.

There is lots of research on the subject of heat related deaths. Both private and government research has proven that once a persons skin temperature reaches between 90-95 degrees mental fatigue and physical exhaustion began to occur. In another study conducted by NASA, when temperatures rise to 95-degress for an extended period of times (often a few days), people tend to make an average of 60 mistakes per hour without even knowing it. At this temperature, the half a persons blood moves toward the skin in an attempt to cool it by creating perspiration. The heat rates increases to 150 beats per minute with less volume to get the blood to the skin. What happens next is that cognitive thinking breaks down, leading to possible anger and physical confrontation.

The best approach to avoiding heat related injuries is planning and hydrating your body with water. There are other options that can help prevent heat stress when time is critical. The iXL Elite Hydration stick is one option. This provides fast hydration, helping keep the body cool and worker hydrated. A-Z Bus Sales recommends that every bus in your fleet is equipped with a Heat Stress Responder kit to help avoid heat related injury and hydrate your employees faster.
