The results of a recent study are especially important for those in the construction industry to consider because of the long hours we sometimes work.

According to the study by researchers from University College London, working longer hours could affect a person’s cardiovascular health and increase the risk for a stroke.

During the study, those who worked longer hours have a 33% risk of having a stroke and 13% chance of having coronary heart disease than those who work standard hours of 35-40 hours per week.
