Temperature extremes can also have an impact on the potential for overexertion injuries. Working in a hot
environment under high metabolic load, can lead to heat stress, whole body fatigue and/or cardiovascular
strain. Working in a cold environment can result in reduced blood flow and muscle tension, which makes muscles
more susceptible to strains.
Ways to reduce risks associated with temperature extremes include:
Wear the proper clothing;
Take frequent breaks in temperature controlled areas;
Drink plenty of water.
