The results of many studies confirm that poor hydration habits and the resulting even mild dehydration has a significant impact on workers' health, safety and productivity. 

It is estimated that around 50-60% of production workers come to work already dehydrated. Studies have also shown that more than 75% of workers do not drink enough fluids at work. 

Production workers lose between 0,5 and up to 2,5 litres of water per hour with their sweat, depending on conditions such as temperature, humidity, work intensity or the type of PPE used. Valuable minerals that are essential for the body to function properly are lost with sweat

Dehydration as low as 1% leads to impaired physical performance, while also impairing our cognitive abilities such as concentration, alertness and reaction times. Performance can drop by 12%. 

At 2% dehydration - that is, the moment we start to feel thirsty - our heart rate is already elevated by about 8 beats per minute and overall performance is lowered by up to 30%.

If we do not replenish fluids and the body continues to dehydrate until we lose 3% of our mass, performance can be lowered by up to 50% and, in addition, cognitive abilities can be impaired, with an effect similar to 0.8 ‰ of alcohol in the blood. At this blood alcohol concentration, the risk of a driver causing an accident is 5-10 times bigger!

The HID-RATION ACADEMY™ programme we have developed is based on years of experience in protecting workers from the effects of working in high temperatures and the latest scientific knowledge in the field of body hydration.

In our view, physical workers are exposed to as much stress as professional athletes during hours of intense training. In both cases, it is crucial to properly replenish fluids and supply the body with the right amount of lost micronutrients. This enables them to function at a high level.

In our HID-RATION ACADEMY™ programme aims to build a drinking habit and raise awareness among employees and team managers about the importance of proper hydration for human health and performance, what it is and how to recognise the signs of dehydration, the risks of even mild dehydration, how to hydrate properly and why it is important to replenish lost micronutrients.

As part of the delivery of the HID-RATION ACADEMY™programme, we can support our clients in the following areas:

  • Analysis of current employee hydration practices.
  • Survey and analysis of current staff hydration levels.
  • Training with experts in dietetics and human physiology on the principles of proper hydration and dehydration prevention.
  • Preparation of educational materials.
  • Infographics to be placed on information boards on company premises.
  • Assistance in the preparation of materials for in-company communication channels.
