Heat and Cold Stress Training & Certification

Hard Hat Training courses meet all training requirements set by OSHA or CSA.

We Offer Three Different Types of Safety Trainings

Our OSHA-compliant certification courses are updated to reflect the most recent changes made to safety standards. Whether you want a certification in as little as two hours with our online training or a more robust, customizable option like you get with our DIY training kits or on-site training, we can help you get the training you want in the way you want it and at a price you can afford.

Online Training

Online is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign and monitor employee training progress and exam scores.

Training Kits

The training kit is for those who want the freedom of doing the training themselves. It's a PowerPoint presentation you can use to train a group of trainees.

Train the Trainer

Train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer online course for no additional cost.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands on training on your own equipment at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.

What's in the Training Course?

Our Heat and Cold Stress training course is regulation compliant. This class discusses topics including Heat Illness, Cold Illness, Case Studies and more.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required.

Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local Section 5(a)(1) General Duty Clause

It incorporates the online course with an additional train the trainer module, as well as the training kit. This option results in an OSHA compliant lifetime trainer certification from Hard Hat Training. This certification is not company-specific, meaning you can take it with you should you change employers.

    Why Do I Need Safety Training?

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) doesn’t have a specific standard for Heat and Cold Stress training. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that "is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees."

    Because of this requirement, your employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with Heat and Cold Stress. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Does OSHA have a heat stress standard?

    OSHA does not have a specific standard for hazardous heat conditions, but they are in the process of rulemaking for heat injury and illness. Most heat stress related regulations fall under the General Duty Clause where employers are required to provide employees a safe working environment.

    What is cold stress?

    Cold stress on the body occurs when the skin temperature goes down which makes the internal body temperature also decline. If your core body temperature declines, it could lead to serious health problems and even death.

    What does OSHA recommend to prevent cold and heat related injuries?

    OSHA recommends that employees’ conditions are monitored throughout the day. Working in pairs and taking breaks from working in hot or cold environments can also help prevent hot and cold related injuries or illnesses.
