Of all the consequences of climate change, extreme heat is the deadliest. It represents a growing risk to the health of millions of workers worldwide. A silent threat that hits the most vulnerable workers first, caught between the imperatives of productivity and the realities of the climate.

The heat kills brutally or slowly, through kidney diseases whose magnitude is only just discovered. It also represents a danger for our economies, confronted with an insurmountable limit: that of the body. From North America to the Indian subcontinent, from the Middle East to Europe, this survey highlights the health and economic impacts of climate change on the world of work.
