NHSC is dedicated to translating current research into practice to protect workers from heat stress.
On-site research initiatives
Participating in a research initiative through NHSC will give you important information on worker characteristics and risk of heat-related events, as well as, workers’ physiological responses to heat stress or heat mitigation strategies (e.g., body cooling, work to rest ratios). Moreover, NHSC can test wearable technologies used in your workplace.
You can also utilize our lab (MISSION heat lab) to examine the effectiveness of various products (e.g., body cooling devices, personal protective gear) or interventions to mitigate the risk of heat-related injuries and illnesses.
