Description


This training course aims to give trainees knowledge and understanding in outdoor work heat and UV exposure and allows trainees to view realistic scenes and be tested on their knowledge retention. Working outdoors in the heat and sun can result in serious illness, and even death, if the proper precautions are not taken.
