Heat and Hydration

Staying Hydrated

Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth and as one of the hottest climates, many Australian workers are at risk of dehydration and heat stress. Those most at risk are outdoor workers who perform physically intensive labour and indoor workers who are exposed to high temperatures with poor ventilation.


It is important to identify and assess any heat safety hazards in the workplace, as there are serious risks associated with dehydration, including heat-related illness. Heat illnesses can range from a heat rash to heat stroke and even death.

Dehydration Symptoms Include:

  • Thirst
  • Dry mouth, dry nose
  • Fewer trips to the bathroom
  • Headache
  • Light-headedness
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Irritability/Confusion
