Peligros de trabajar en el calor

Cada año, decenas de trabajadores mueren y miles más se enferman mientras se trabaja en el calor extremo o condiciones húmedas. Más del 40 por ciento de las muertes relacionadas con el calor de los trabajadores se producen en la industria de la construcción, pero los trabajadores en todos los campos son susceptibles. Hay una serie de enfermedades por el calor y pueden afectar a cualquier persona, independientemente de su edad o condición física.

Water. Rest. Shade.

Every year, dozens of workers die and thousands more become ill while working in extreme heat or humid conditions. More than 40 percent of heat-related worker deaths occur in the construction industry, but workers in every field are susceptible. There are a range of heat illnesses and they can affect anyone, regardless of age or physical condition.
