Hydration and Workplace Performance

Staying hydrated plays a critical role in the survival of humans. Insufficient hydration on your worksite can disturb vital life functions, impacting cognitive performance such as concentration, memory and visuomotor skills. Fatigue is an early symptom of dehydration which can slow down reaction times and can impact a worker’s ability to make decisions, stay alert and maintain focus. This can lead to a higher number of site injuries, posing significant risk to workers operating plant machinery, driving vehicles, working at heights or handling hazardous substances.
