  Heat stress from extreme heat and humidity will annually affect areas now home to billion people by , assuming current greenhouse gas emissions, according to a Rutgers University study. That’s more than four times the number of people affected today, and more than 12 times the number who would have been affected without industrial era. Heat stress can be assessed by measuring one or more of environmental, work, or worker factors, and then utilising the appropriate heat stress index. An environmental heat stress index is one of the indicators of risk for heat injuries and should be used in conjunction with other factors to .
