FEELING HOT! HOT! HOT!
Finally, summer has arrived and whilst we all want to make the most of the weather, here are a few tips for dealing with Heat exhaustion and heatstroke
Heat exhaustion is not usually serious if you can cool down within 30 minutes. If it turns into heatstroke it needs to be treated as an emergency.
The signs of heat exhaustion include:
- Dizziness and confusion
- Loss of appetite and feeling sick
- Excessive sweating and pale, clammy skin
- Cramps in the arms, legs and stomach
- Fast breathing or pulse
- Temperature of 38C or above
- Being very thirsty
- The symptoms are often the same in adults and children, although children may become floppy and sleepy.
If someone is showing signs of heat exhaustion they need to be cooled down. Here are some things you can do to cool someone down
- Move them to a cool place.
- Get them to lie down and raise their feet slightly.
- Get them to drink plenty of water. Sports or rehydration drinks are OK.
- Cool their skin – spray or sponge them with cool water and fan them. Cold packs around the armpits or neck are good too.
- Stay with them until they are better.
They should start to cool down and feel better within 30 minutes. If not Immediate action is required: Call 999 if the person:
- Is no better after 30 minutes
- Feels hot and dry
- Is not sweating even though they are too hot
- Has a temperature that’s risen to 40C or above
- Has rapid or shortness of breath
- Is confused
- Has a fit (seizure)
- Loses consciousness
- Is unresponsive
These can be signs of heatstroke.
While you wait for help, give first aid and put them in the recovery position if they lose consciousness.
Preventing heat exhaustion and heatstroke
There is a high risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke during hot weather or exercise.
To help prevent heat exhaustion or heatstroke:
- Drink plenty of cold drinks, especially when exercising
- Take cool baths or showers
- Wear light-coloured, loose clothing
- Sprinkle water over skin or clothes
- Avoid the sun between 11am and 3pm
- Avoid excess alcohol
- Avoid extreme exercise
This will also prevent dehydration and help your body keep itself cool.
Signs of dehydration are visible in your urine. Dark and strong-smelling urine is a clear sign that you need to drink more fluids.
Use the urine colour chart to check for signs of dehydration. Healthy pee is 1-3, 4-8 must hydrate.
If you want to escape the sunshine altogether then why not enrol on one of our many cool courses. The courses are set in a lovely office environment with plenty of cold drinks on hand.

AW Safety Management are proud sponsors of this local winning Mansfield team
Ben and Tom Birchall have won the prestigious Gold Race at round three of the 2019 FIM Sidecar World Championship. Added to a runner-up finish in the Sprint Race, the Mansfield-based brothers now lie just seven points behind the leaders in the provisional overall championship standings.
It was a hot one at Oschersleben in Germany last weekend, with temperatures reaching well into the 30s. As one of the Birchall’s favourite circuits, the team arrived at the historic track with the goal of winning both races to reclaim the championship lead.
Practice and qualifying went well with the Mitchells of Mansfield supported team setting the pace to ultimately claim pole position with a time 0.3 seconds faster than their rivals. Feeling comfortable on track, Ben and Tom even had chance to make a couple of cooling and bedding in laps during the session such was their pace.
With plans to make up for the Sprint Race result, Birchall Racing made some subtle tweaks to their LCR Yamaha outfit before Sunday’s 21-lap Gold Race. Overnight thunderstorms had cleared the air, leaving the track and conditions more favourable for the main event. Ben and Tom once again got the perfect start and led the pack into the first corner. Similarly, to the first race with all the action going on behind them, Ben was able to manage his pace and stretch his lead ahead of the sidecars jostling for position behind. Crossing the line unchallenged by their rivals, Birchall Racing bagged 25 valuable points, keeping their championship hopes very much alive with three rounds of the series remaining.
