The construction industry is one of the major growing industries in Kerala. The potential impact of extreme climate change on the construction workers has received limited attention to the mainstream. Kerala is one of the major states which engaged in construction work in the rural as well as urban areas. Nowadays, outdoor construction workers face extreme summer heat problems in the construction sites. Extreme summer climate changes adversely impact the safety and wellbeing of the workers. The heat related illness is leading to higher level mortality in Kerala. Since it affects the marginalised population, there is very less discussion and attempt to address this issue. This paper focuses on the health issues and what are the precautions taken by the construction workers in extreme summer climate.
