The next online seminar organized by the Ethical Trade Forums will be carried out on Tuesday, April 16, between 16:00 and 17:30, and will focus on the impact of heat stress on workers.

In this opportunity we will have two experts; Jason Glaser (La Isla Network), and Denis Chavarría (Head of Occupational Health and Medicine at Ingenio San Antonio, ISA) who have guided the Adelante Initiative and the subsequent PREP program, creating one of the leading systems in the world to prevent heat stress in the agricultural sector, applied in one of the most demanding environments; the sugar cane fields of Nicaragua.

The lessons learned are applicable to the risks faced by workers and employers in Europe as the climate warms. Experts have focused on ensuring that programs reduce damages, increase productivity and provide a positive return on investment.

This seminar is a great opportunity to learn from experts in the field and connect with professionals who share an interest in approaching the issue of heat stress in our communities.
