Abstract: As the global temperature increases around the world, Singapore is no stranger or exception to the effects of heat. The Construction industry is a vulnerable industry when it comes to the side effects of global warming. The amount of heat injuries occurring in Construction injuries is an issue that is gaining prevalence and hence needs to be measured and mitigated. This paper aims to explore and understand the current literature revolving around the topic of heat detection technologies for the purpose of Construction. A systematic literature review will be conducted, where 50 related articles will be studied after the preliminary rounds of extracting and eliminating non-relevant articles. The common trends and analysis of current literature will be pointed out to understand the current landscape regarding technology and heat detection. We will mainly be focusing on wearable technologies and thermal cameras. The literature reviews will also be substantiated with interviews conducted with Project Managers to understand their sentiments and concerns towards the adoption of these technologies. The combination of literature reviews and interviews will in result produce a recommendation for contractors on the adoption of heat detection technologies in their future projects. Through this study, we aim to also identify the current research gaps and recommend future research agendas in order to broaden the understanding of heat stress detection.
