Hazards on heat exposure are a public health concern. The impacts of hazards on heat on mortality and morbidity at the population scale are well documented, but little is known about specific exposures that individuals experience, human exposure to a hot environment may result in various heat-related illnesses (HRIs), which range in severity from mild and moderate forms to life-threatening heat exposure, heat illnesses and heatstroke, heat-related illnesses presenting to the emergency department are associated with high mortality and morbidity, especially in the elderly, define personal heat exposure as realized contact between a person and an indoor or outdoor environment that poses a risk of increases in body core temperature and/or perceived discomfort, the population hazards on heat exposure can be measured directly with wearable monitors or estimated indirectly through the combination of time–activity and meteorological data sets. Complementary information to understand hazards on heat exposure , susceptibility, and health and comfort outcomes can be collected from additional monitors, surveys, interviews, ethnographic approaches, and additional social and health data sets.
Aim of the study: To assessment knowledge of the population about hazards on heat exposure at Saudi Arabia 2023.
Methods: Across sectional descriptive study conducted among population who attending at primary Health care Center in Saudi Arabia 2023 during July, 2023 to September 2023, Our total Sample size of participants were (400)
Results: show distribution of the relation of participant to knowledge about Hazards of Heat Exposure and Prevalence of Heat Illnesses regarding the knowledge the most of participants answer Yes knowledge were (71.0%) followed by No were (29.0%) and total were (100.0%) while heave a significant relation were P-value <0.001 and X2 69.722 Conclusion: population heat exposure research provides more valid and precise insights into how often people encounter hazards on heat exposure, heat conditions and when, where, to whom, and why these encounters occur. Published literature on personal heat exposure is limited to date, but existing studies point to opportunities to inform the population practice regarding hazards on heat exposure fine-scale precision is needed to reduce health consequences of heat exposure
