Preventing Heat Related Illness

With the summer heat upon us, NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) has released guidelines to help organizations protect their workers from heat related illnesses.  The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reported a total of 423 worker deaths from exposure to environmental heat in a 15 year period from 1992-2006.  Included in the report are some tips to keep workers as cool as possible in the summer heat.

  1. To Whom It May Concern.

    Hello my name is Leon Hughes. Sales Representative for the Core Cooler Company. I’m proud to bring to your attention a product that offers many benefits to your athletes by breathing cold air. Whether in the heat to help control core temp, lower heat storage, lower surface temp, lower the heart rate to better regulate blood pressure with less cardiovascular strain or in the gym to increase performance by 3.9%. The Core Cooler fits all those needs. Validated at the University of Arkansas and endorsed by Dr. Brendan McDermontt who performed the testing. I simply ask you read the attachment about our testing and findings and decide for yourself if the Core Cooler belongs in your program.

    Findings on Average:

    30% Less heat storage
    .5 Degrees lower core temp
    Lower heart rate by 7 beats per minute
    4 Degree lower skin/surface temp
    3.9% Increase in performance
    A rise in the systolic blood pressure. This reflects the physiological response that more blood/oxygen was available while using the Core Cooler reducing cardiovascular strain.

    Best Regards,
