Thermal Exposure Monitoring

People react to working in different temperatures in different ways; heat stress can lead to dehydration, heat rash, increased in blood pressure, fainting or exhaustion and heat stroke. In severe cases, there is also a risk of loss of life.

Some workers regularly deal with warm temperatures because of their working environments, such as boiler rooms, foundries, smelting operations, bakeries and catering kitchens. Some workers may be at risk of heat stress due to working in small spaces or wearing protective equipment.

To avoid heat stress and ill-health effects, workplace exposure assessments need to be carried out.

How our experts can help:

  • Assess worker exposure to heat and cold.
  • Determine the appropriate control measures to ensure that exposures are properly controlled.
  • Implement corrective practices or equipment to minimise or remove risk for the employee.

Our teams have been involved in establishing EU and UK Government guidelines to establish levels of acceptable exposure and guidelines to minimise workplace thermal stress.

Application of health impact assessment for environmental and occupational exposures

  • 08 July 2021
  • 11:00-12:00

Join us on the 8th of July as Will Mueller shares insights on how to implement Health Impact Assessment (HIA) methods in environmental and occupational scenarios. His seminar will be of particular interest to those in occupational hygiene and air pollution research. The talk will allow others to capitalise on what went well and learn from some of the challenges, leading to more accurate, informed and impactful research from colleagues. 

The HIA is an important evaluation tool used to judge the potential health effects of a policy, programme or project on a population, particularly on vulnerable or disadvantaged groups and by using it in different settings it can help to facilitate cleaner environments and healthier workplaces.  

Running from 11:00-12:00 there will be a presentation followed by questions.
