People who work in industrial workplaces, particularly during summer, are at risk of heat stress and dehydration. The constant exposure to high heats and sunlight combined with extensive physical exertion puts workers health at serious risk.
Dehydration occurs where too much body fluids and electrolytes are lost. If no treatment is provided, dehydration can have serious and long lasting consequences.
Dehydration negatively impacts workplace productivity, safety and morale. Research shows that the risk of workplace injury increases with the temperature and that even mild dehydration reduces the cognitive capacity of workers, increasing the risk of mistake or injury occurring.
The most effective way to counteract the effects of dehydration to prevent injury is to replenish the lost fluids and electrolytes with a THORZT drink or icy pole.
THORZT contains an optimal mix of electrolytes and is scientifically formulated to combat the extreme Australian conditions. THORZT is gluten and caffeine free, containing only half the sugar of regular sports drinks with some sugar free options. It is available in liquid concentrate, single serve powder shots and icy poles.
To protect yourself and your workers this summer look out for the below warning signs of dehydration:
- Heavy sweating
- Dark urine
- Dry mouth and skin
- Confusion and loss of focus
Using THORZT will reduce all of these symptoms and mitigate against the risk of injury in your workplace.
