16 Safety & Risk Management - Ontario Lawn Bowls Association Avoiding Heat Stress The risk of heat stress is higher when the Humidex is over 30. Contributing factors include: Age (over 60 or less than 16); A low level of physical fitness; Pre-existing heart or lung disease; Medications that may be taken for certain medical conditions. Rest periods and measures to ensure adequate hydration are essential. Water is an adequate fluid option only for activities lasting one hour or less. Participants in activities running longer require both carbohydrates and electrolytes, as well as water replacement. The Championship Committee has developed guidelines aimed at reducing the risk of heat stress during club play, tournaments and district and provincial championships. These guidelines are intended to assist clubs and championship convenors. Clubs and districts may choose to establish their own policies. Rest periods between games should be a minimum of ½ hour; players should be encouraged to rest in the club house even if it is not air conditioned; Humidex readings of 35 to 42 or higher may require an adjustment to the format of play and length of games; If the humidex reading is higher than 42, cancellation and rescheduling of the event may be considered; If the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) is forecast to be 6 or higher, convenors may recommend to players an alternate format or reduction in the number of ends played in each game; If one does not already exist, it is helpful for clubs to establish a suitable location with adequate air circulation. Players are urged to bring their own drinks, containing small amounts of carbohydrate & electrolytes. All drinks should be cooler than the ambient temperature. Hats should be well-vented and have wide brims to protect the neck and ears. Sunscreen (at least SPF 30, with UV protection) is also important. The Committee encourages each club to purchase a humidex metre in order to assess the risk of holding an event, or continuing if one is already underway.
