Gatorade

Gatorade for Worker Health and Safety

Keeping workers hydrated is fundamental to helping prevent injuries. On the job injuries cost American companies $48,000 per worker in 2008.
 
How does dehydration affect worker performance?
  • Workers' motor speed and attention starts to decline after losing just 2% of their body weight from sweating.
  • Physically they may experience dizziness, headaches, irritability, and muscle cramps, and in extreme cases, heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
How can Gatorade help keep workers safe?
 
Depending on heat levels and amount of protective gear worn, workers can lose over a gallon of sweat per shift.
  • Not all beverages have the ingredients needed to encourage the re-hydration process
  • An optimally formulated sports drink, like Gatorade, can help replace body fluid lost through sweat to prevent dehydration, and refuel working muscels to provide more energy, allowing workers to work longer, harder and safer.

The Science of Gatorade

From elite athletes to everyday hard workers, no other hydration beverage is as tested as Gatorade. Over 40 years of research demonstrate that Gatorade contains an optimal balance of flavor, electrolytes and carbohydrates to keep workers hydrated and fueled for optimal performance.
 
Why does Gatorade make sense for workers?
  • Gatorade has been shown to increase endurance and manual work productivity in hard workers compared to carbohydrate free beverages like water.
  • Gatorade contains multiple types of carbohydrate such as glucose, fructose and sucrose, which promotes fast water absorption and enhances re-hydration.
Why is Gatorade more effective than water?
  • Plain water will not replace the electrolytes lost through sweat, nor will it supply the energy that working muscels need. Gatorade provides both.
  • Research shows that people will stop drinking water before they are properly hydrated, and the flavor in Gatorade promotes drinking.
  • Research demonstrates that when people are hot and sweaty, they will consume more of a carbohydrate-electrolyte beverage like Gatorade than water.

Gatorade is relatively low in sugar and calories compared to other beverages. Gatorade has half the sugar found in juices or regular soft drinks, and about half the calories of skim milk. The small amount of carbohydrates present in Gatorade is necessary to provide energy to working muscles, and it enhances re-hydration, replenishment and refueling for work occasions.
