Many people fall victim to heat stress due to lack of hydration, over exertion and exposure to heat & humidity in confined spaces. In most cases, people are not aware they are dehydrated until it is too late.
It is essential to assess the thermal risks associated with the work environment to protect the health of the work crews. When risk assessments determine that heat stress is a significantly greater risk, ISH24 can assist to determine thermal work limits and recommendations using WBGT and TWL algorithms on our Heat Stress Monitor to determine work/rest ratios and recommended fluid intakes.
In known extreme environments, the CorTemp® system scans and monitors individuals core body temperature and heart rate to detect and react to any changes quickly.
