There are various environmental conditions that could wreak havoc on our bodies, which is why having a physiological monitoring system in place is a must to ensure that workers are protected at all times.
There are numerous reasons why a worker may begin to overheat, from it simply being summer and having to wear a heavy uniform to being exposed to extreme environments (such as open flames). When our bodies are unable to maintain their optimal body temperature, heat illness occurs. This can cause a variety of problems, from rashes and lethargy to heat stroke and even death.
The human body needs water to maintain enough blood and other fluids (such as electrolytes) to function properly. Dehydration occurs when water and other fluids are lost from our bodies but are not replenished. This can cause a variety of problems, from headaches and dizziness to low blood pressure and even death.
Core Body Temperature
Although not everyone’s “normal” core body temperature is the same, keeping our temperature within the safe range is essential. When your body temperature rises, you may begin experiencing a fever. Whilst this isn’t necessarily bad for you, it could lead to heat stress and isn’t very pleasant. When your body temperature lowers, you may develop hypothermia (which can lead to death).
