RESEARCH: HEAT INJURY AT WORK

 

75% of your body’s energy goes into regulating heat!

OSHA reports that every year, thousands of workers become ill from occupational heat exposure, leading to heat injury + heat stroke.

When the body cannot get rid of excess heat, it will store it. As the body continues to store heat, workers begin to lose concentration and may become irritable or sick. The next stage is most often fainting and even death if the person is not immediately cooled.

Cooling Core Body = Improved Efficiency + Fewer Injuries

“Cooling the core body temperature by 1 degree can improve performance by as much as 21%”. 

 Cooling the core body helps to eliminate mental and physical exhaustion, while also preventing heat injury and improving efficiency. Workers at greater risk of heat stress include those who are 65 years of age or older, are overweight, have heart disease or high blood pressure, or take medications that may be affected by extreme heat.
