Heat stress is the overall heat burden on the body. Heat stress should not be taken lightly. It is a serious condition that could lead to a high potential for inducing heat stress. Several risk factors could lead to heat stress: high air temperatures, radiant heat sources, strenuous physical activities and high humidity levels indoors or outdoors.
