    Typical example of a heat stress situation Someone wearing protective clothing and performing heavy work in hot and humid conditions could be at risk of heat stress because: • sweat evaporation is restricted by the type of clothing and the humidity of the environment • heat will be produced within the body due to the work rate and, if insufficient heat is lost, core body temperature will rise • as core body temperature rises the body reacts by increasing the amount of sweat produced, which may lead to dehydration • heart rate also increases which puts additional strain on the body • if the body is gaining more heat than it can lose the deep body temperature will continue to rise • eventually it reaches a point when the body’s control mechanism itself starts to fail The symptoms will worsen the longer someone remains working in the same conditions.
