Association between high ambient temperature and acute work-related injury

A case-crossover analysis using workers' compensation claims data
This study found that high ambient temperatures are associated with increased risk of serious acute work-related injury for some worker subgroups. It expanded on previous research by assessing associations with both daily minimum and maximum temperatures, by using a novel approach to occupational characteristics classification, and by using a case-crossover study design. Study findings provide evidence to inform prevention strategies.
