Farming, fishing and forestry workers are at particular risk for heat illness. Like athletes, during hard work, heat is built-up in the body. This, plus the external (environmental) sources can cause heat-related illnesses. Heat illness occur when the body can no longer cope and the body’s physical and mental functions break down.

Heat illnesses and deaths are preventable. Key information and engaging games (English and Spanish) are available at nasdonline.org on:

  • Signs and symptoms
  • Preparedness – with employer checklist
  • Personal risk factors
  • Emergency response
