Napo in… Heat stress (The duel)
Heat Stress is an important topic in parts of the world with summer temperatures over 50ºC, where it is a significant hazard in the construction, oil and gas, and agricultural sectors. In many other industries such as bakeries, foundries and metal smelting, it is a hazard all year round. Heat stress occurs when the body is dehydrated and therefore unable to cool itself. It can lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke with headaches, dizziness, and confusion.
