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.
