Working to create improved heat-related illness prevention strategies


Our Goal is to understand the physiological responses to environmental heat and physical work in inland valley field workers, and the socio-cultural influences that affect the workers’ behavior and therefore their risk of suffering HRI. Ultimately, we want to use the study information to create improved HRI prevention strategies for both the employers and employees on farms.
