Adverse effects of occupational heat stress in the context of the changing climate on working populations are subtle but considerably harmful. However, social dimensions and impacts of climate change–related occupational heat concerns on workers’ safety and health, productivity and well-being are often overlooked or relegated as minor issues in social impact analyses of occupational heat exposure due to climate change. This paper offers a conceptual framework based on an appraisal and synthesis ...

Abstract Heavy physical workload for long hours coupled with increasing workplace heat exposure due to rising temperatures stemming from climate change, especially where there are inadequate prevention and control policies, adversely affect workers' health and safety, productive capacity and social well-being. However, variations in workers' concerns and awareness of occupational heat stress and climate change risks impede the effectiveness of heat stress management. A mixed method approach was ...

Abstract Increasing air temperatures as a result of climate change are worsening the impact of heat exposure on working populations, including mining workers, who are at risk of suffering heat-related illnesses, injury and death. However, inadequate awareness of climate change-related occupational heat stress risks and adaptation strategies have been shown to render occupational heat stress management ineffective. A concurrent mixed-methods approach was used to assess the perceptions of climate ...

Abstract Dimensions of risks and impacts of occupational heat stress due to climate change on workers' health and safety, productivity, and social well-being are significantly deleterious. Aside from empirical evidence, no systematic review exists for policy development and decision making in managing occupation heat stress impacts and adaptation strategies of workers. This study sought to synthesise evidence on the social impacts of occupational heat stress and adaptation strategies of workers....

Environmental health hazards faced by farmers, such as exposure to extreme heat stress, are a growing concern due to global climate change, particularly in tropical developing countries. In such environments, farmers are considered to be a population at risk of environmental heat exposure. The situation is exacerbated due to their farming methods that involve the use of primitive equipment and hard manual labour conducted in full sunshine under hot and humid conditions. However, there is inadequ...

Industrial attachment in polytechnic education based on the philosophy of experiential education facilitates the production of technically skilled and productive human capital for national development. However, the snag of the programme in human capital development relates to inadequacy of logistics and funding, weak polytechnic-industry linkage, inadequate supervision, and evaluation. The objective of the paper is to assess the prospects of the industrial attachment programme in human capital d...

The institution of industrial attachment in polytechnic education is significant. Industrial attachment underpinned by experiential learning is most appropriate option to enhancing polytechnic-industry nexus in the development of technically skilled and productive human capital potentials for the world of work. However, the polytechnic-industry collaboration in human capital development is hampered by inadequate educational infrastructure, logistics, funding for laboratories, workshops and indus...
The objective of this paper is to set out the conceptual linkage between sexual and reproduction health promotion for human capital development. It provides a two-stage conceptual framework which shows the linkage between adolescent sexual and reproductive health promotion and human capital development. The paper is a critical review of the concepts of adolescent sexual and reproductive health and its implication for human capital development. It reviews the conceptual framework of Pan American ...

Industrial attachment based on experiential learning offers the most promising strategy in the development of productive and technically skilled human capital potentials of students in Ghanaian public polytechnics for the world of work. However, inadequate logistics, funding and follow-up visits and supervision of students on attachment seem to hinder the success of the industrial attachment programme of polytechnics in Ghana. This paper seeks to assess the perceptions of stakeholders on how the...

The issue of sustainable development (SD) is increasingly present among the concerns of the international academic community. However, the depth of our unsustainable practices suggests that insufficient progress has been made to move from an unsustainable lifestyle to sustainable development. By sharing ideas, concepts, tools, experiences learned in different contexts, it is anticipated that we will all learn many things that will help us to help our academic communities and companies to develop...
