SINTEF Digital Health research
Health risks and health effects of firefighter work
The primary objectives of the project are to explore health risks among firefighters, and to study the dual challenge of exposure to heat and carcinogenic compounds exposure and related outcomes, and how this knowledge can be used to establish preventive measures.
The Digital Worker ERA will focus on exposure, physical and organisational factors for workers in the petroleum industry. We will build new knowledge on real-time exposure assessment of chemical, physiological strain and the human factors elements of using such assessments in-situ.
