SPIG is committed to protecting the health and safety of all personnel involved in its activities as an internal part of its business management. Heat stress is major health hazard especially in summer season, where climate is hot and humid with temperature raising up to 45 degree centigrade and relative humidity reaching up to 70 to 80% in some part of the country where we operate. This hot and humid climate creates a potentially dangerous situation for those exposed to the heat The company approach to protecting the health of its personnel in such areas is to provide safe working environment by minimizing their exposure to such hot and humid conditions and its adverse health effects. In order to achieve this objective we follow the basic occupational health and industrial hygiene principle i.e Recognition, Evaluation and Control.
COMPANY NAME Heat prevention and management guidelines addresses heat stress identification, evaluation and control to implement to reduce various effects of heat stress-ranging from heat cramps, heat syncope, heat exhaustion and heat stroke among the workers.
The primary hazard to be controlled is heat related illness. There are three primary illnesses associated with excess heat strain on the body that this document will address. They are heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. When the human body cannot maintain the internal body temperature or electrolyte balance, illness can develop from the heat cramps to heat exhaustion and finally to heat stroke. There are two major factors affecting the body temperature when working in hot environments.
Establish a complete heat illness prevention program, provide training about the hazards leading to heat stress and how to prevent them, provide a lot of cool water to workers close to the work area, At least one pint of water per hour is needed.
Modify work schedules and arrange frequent rest periods with water breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas, Gradually increase workloads and allow more frequent breaks for workers new to the heat or those that have been away from work to adapt to working in the heat (acclimatization), Designate a responsible person to monitor conditions and protect workers who are at risk of heat stress, Consider protective clothing that provides cooling.
