Heat and UV exposure

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. From heat stroke and heat exhaustion, to skin cancer, outdoor workers are particularly vulnerable to the health and safety hazards presented by an often-unpredictable work environment. This training course is suitable for all levels and highlights the fundamental concepts that enable outdoor workers to safely manage their exposure to heat, UV radiation and other hazards.

Upon successful completion of the course trainees will be issued with a certificate which will be valid for 5 years.

Note, A UKRS course standard is only endorsed when delivered by an appropriate instructor and accompanied by an accredited UKRS Certificate.

Why choose RT e-learning?

The use of interactive quizzes and simulation tasks, based on realistic scenarios from genuine workplace environments, means E-Learners can more readily acquire skills and knowledge meaningful to their own work-based practices.

E-Learning can accommodate many different learning styles and can engage the learner via a range of rich and stimulating approaches, which are more relevant to the subject requirements, than can often be achieved in normal classroom-based learning.
