As aviation-related businesses approach the busier and warmer travel season, they find heat illness can present problems for their staff. Current and newly hired employees must adapt to the changing weather conditions and operate equipment safely in hot temperatures.
July is designated Heat Awareness Month. Statistics show heat-related illnesses are the most dangerous weather-related health condition during the summer months. Heat-related deaths peak in July and August. Each year, heat waves result in more fatalities in the U.S. than tornadoes, earthquakes, floods and hurricanes combined.
To assist with solving this prickly problem, Motive Learning, a leading learning technology company, is offering its Heat Illness Prevention on the Airport eLearning course now.
Motive Learning specializes in airport safety, ground handling, airport operations and regulatory compliance training and tracking.
