Temperature and the affiliated scientific community are a leading forum for discussion and dissemination of scientific evidence relevant to the societal challenges of global warming. In an Editorial published at the onset of the HEAT-SHIELD project, which is an inter-sectoral research project funded by the European Commission, we advocated for thermal physiologists to lead the research required to fill knowledge gaps on the issue of occupational heat stress .
We vowed to collaborate with researchers all over the world and exchange knowledge on how to integrate scientific evidence into effective, sustainable, and feasible actions that may be adopted by workers, employers, and policy makers. Five years later, we are delighted to see that the scientific community has responded to this call for action and collaboration, and that the occupational heat stress literature has been rapidly growing within Temperature and beyond
