How much should you drink?
This varies according to the age, fitness, diet and lifestyle of the individual. Other factors such as length of shift, temperature and type of encapsulting clothing worn (this protective clothing increases the heat load on the body) and exposure to continuous radiant heat all impact on how much to drink.
Studies in industry indicate a person exposed to these 'at-risk' conditions or in very fatiguing situations should drink one 250 ml cup of an electrolyte drink every 30 minutes. We also recommend that workers drink 250 ml of water in between.This brings the total fluid consumed to 1 litre per hour.
