Severe Risks of Climate Change on Worker Health

As companies strive to curb carbon emissions, it’s essential to consider how rising global temperatures and air pollution will impact the workforce.

Trane Technologies has committed to reducing one billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions (CO2e) from its customer's carbon footprints by 2030. Achieving this goal requires occupational workers to install new technologies in outdoor elements, and in turn, requires controls to reduce occupational heat stress.

Join this session for techniques and solutions to reduce carbon emissions and strategies to improve worker health and safety amid the effects of climate change.
