    NIOSH has a new study, the first in 30 years. They say, during hot work, use urine color charts. Workers in a hot environment should monitor their urine color. Pale yellow is normal, deep amber like is bad. The worker needs to hydrate.

Short enough to stay tuned for

I love that these episodes pack so much great info into two or three minutes. Some subjects might sound boring, but Dan Clark does a great job explaining them. Also, they always link to even more resources. If this podcast was a meal at my favorite restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory, it would be the Cajun Jambalaya Pasta. Something for everyone. Very good show.
