Posters on how heat stress can be managed are put up at common areas
In partnership with Raffles Medical Group, talks will be organised for airside supervisors and team leaders to educate them on symptoms of heat stroke and how to render first aid for workers suspected of heat stress.
Dr Sharen Tian, Raffles Medical Group shared, “The risk of heat related illness is higher for airside workers, compared to those who work in an indoor setting. It is important to recognise symptoms and prevent heat-related illnesses, before it turns into heat stroke, which is life threatening. Some quick tips would be to always remain hydrated and know one’s limits, so that you don’t push yourself beyond that. Colleagues should also keep a lookout for one another.”
These heat stress management measures are all but one part of managing higher ambient temperatures at Changi, under CAG’s climate resilience strategy. Foresight and early planning are critical to fostering long-term climate resilience for Changi Airport to enable operational continuity for our passengers. CAG continually seeks to bolster Changi Airport’s resilience to climate change through infrastructural adaptations and taking care of its staff.
