Description: As logging operations continue in the hotter months of he year, the safety hazard of heat stress appears. Loggers are particularly at risk, because the combination of hard physical work and outdoor conditions puts high demands on the body. While loggers rarely die from heat stress, they may suffer heat illness symptoms ranging from the discomfort of heat rash to nausea or heat cramps. The best prevention is awareness. Workers and supervisors need to understand heat illnesses and know how to recognize and prevent them.
