As we all navigate higher than normal temperatures our Health and Safety Team wanted to share out the safety tips below.
Human bodies naturally maintain temperatures
between 36 and 38 degrees Celsius. If body
temperatures rise faster than the body can
disperse excess heat (through sweat and other
means) people may experience heat stress.
Signs and Symptoms of Heat Stress
Heat Cramps/Excessive Sweating
Muscle Spasms/Heat Exhaustion
Shallow Respiration/Cool, Clammy Skin
Headache and Nausea and/or Vomiting
If showing signs and symptoms of heat
cramps, move to a cool environment and
• Wear light-colored, light weight,
• Know your personal limits and monitor
• Wear sunscreen and a sun hat. • Drink plenty of fluids (water).
• If doing outdoor activities, take rest breaks in
the shade as required.
Please remember to send a water bottle to school with your child and apply sunscreen as needed.
Thanks so much
