Just as many parts of the country start feeling the heat of spring and summer, LBA University is now offering an online Heat Stress Safety course. The online course is OSHA compliant and covers heat stress illnesses and the various hazards unique to working in environments where heat exposure is a critical concern.
The online course content is supported by the skilled LBA University training staff. Bryan Dixon is course director.

Employers can explore the detailed benefits of the Heat Stress Safety course and the many other OSHA compliant safety training courses offered by LBA University at: http://www.lbagroup.com/lbauniversity/index.php.
LBA’s Heat Stress Safety course has been carefully crafted to teach the understanding of how heat can impact the human body, how to recognize the symptoms of heat stress and how a person can effectively intervene to help others and themselves.
This course highlights CDC guidelines, OHSA regulations, and industry standards set forth by various agencies addressing Heat Stress Hazards. The course explores five important topics related to heat stress:
- How is a person suffering from Heat Stroke helped
- How should workers dress to maximize their protection in hot weather
- What are key indicators someone is suffering from heat stress
- How to respond to someone suffering from a heat emergency
- How to avoid common sources of heat stress
The LBA Heat Stress Safety course also goes beyond these key points to help create a solid awareness of the hazards that are often overlooked or go unrecognized.
“Through the introduction or refreshing of this information, everyone who takes the course is better prepared to eliminate or prevent a potentially deadly encounter with hot weather hazards,” said course director Bryan Dixon.
LBA University online training is tailored to employer needs, easy to take on the employee's schedule, and economical. Companies get a record of training performance to add to employee and OSHA compliance files.
This innovative, cost effective online course is available at both individual and group rates. On successful completion of a test, a personalized printable certificate is automatically generated. Student completion is also reported to a designated manager.
