Aluminet: An Intervention for Heat-related Illness among Construction Workers

Heat illness is a major occupational hazard for construction workers, who often spend the summer months working outdoors or in hot, enclosed spaces. Manufacturers are producing a growing array of protective garments and products geared to the construction workforce to mitigate heat stress. In this study, researchers tested a new aluminum-fiber (“Aluminet”) vest designed to reflect heat.

Physicians' Alerts

Physicians' Alerts are developed to help ensure that all construction workers at risk of developing work-related medical conditions are properly diagnosed and treated. The Alerts contain valuable information for the worker and their physician related to common exposures and tasks in construction, and include best practices to prevent and mitigate exposure-related conditions.
