Mining and Heatwaves



In a collaboration with Menzies School of Health Research, we conducted a multi-faceted

heat stress research project at McArthur River Mine over a 15-month period. We had a great research team and a motivated group of workers involved in the study. The weather was perfect (heatwave most days) and ABC News visited to see what we were up to – see the story below (note that we do not handle the ingestible thermometers, this was 'mocked up' for the camera).
