Short- and long-term health consequences of workers during consecutive days of heat stress
A hot work environment can lead to fatigue, hyperthermia, and dehydration, which may increase injury risk and reduce productivity. The goal of this study is to learn more about the body’s response to repeated days of working in a hot and humid environment. Participation will involve 7 visits to the UB South Campus for repeated days of 8-hour periods of sitting or performing moderate-high intensity work in a hot and humid room.
The study has two aims:Aim 1: Quantify fatigue incurred during consecutive days of heavy work in a hot environment while adhering to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommendations.Aim 2: Determine the impact of consecutive days of heat stress on biomarkers of AKI while following the NIOSH recommendations.
Compensation may include cash, checks, gift cards, debit cards, or incentives like gift baskets, technology items, or merchandise.
