||As a result of the heat wave of 2003, many questions were raised concerning the health effects of work in hot environments and possible preventive measures. An information package was put together and published on the French Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (INRS) website. However, it became apparent that this information needed to be further developed and a multidisciplinary working group was established to prepare the present information and guidance document. Contents: thermal comfort; epidemiological data; risk factors; adaptation to heat and effect of heat on humans; prevention measures (working conditions, work organization, selective measures that may be implemented by employers, personal lifestyle measures, technical measures); legal aspects.
