Prevention of workplace heat stress in the scope of Horizon 2020 research project

An EU funded research programme, Heat-Shield is addressing the negative health and productivity effects caused by working in the heat.

The project looks into how heat stress affects workers' health and productivity, the signs and symptoms of heat illness, and the best-evidence methods for protecting workers in the heat.

To address these issues, Heat-Shield focuses on providing adaptation strategies for the five major industries of the EU and its workers: manufacturing, construction, transportation, tourism, and agriculture.
