Hydration & Safety… What’s the link?
Quick fact: decreases in physical and cognitive performance occur when as little as 2% body water is lost from water restriction, heat or physical exertion.
When dehydrated we make poor decisions and cognitive performance declines, resulting in decreased productivity and increased risk of work-related accidents. That’s not all, either!
If you’re overweight or obese, you suffer the consequences of dehydration to a greater degree than your lean counterparts.
