Heat Stress

Heat stress formula: E req = M +/- R +/- C. If you are responsible for heat stress management and are not comfortable with this formula or any of the terms or requirements for a best practice or an OSHA minimum standard, call us!

Heat Stress, Heat Stroke, Heat Exhaustion, Heat Cramps, Heat Rashes – you need to know them! WBGT, Temp, Humidity, Dew Point, Radiant Heat Transfer, Convective Heat Transfer, Metabolic Heat Generation, Max Evap Cap, etc – you need to know these too!

I have conducted hundreds of heat stress calculations, and wrote many recommendations, investigated death claims, provided protocols, regiments, etc. We can measure the globe, wet globe, dry globe and all temperatures you need.

Few things are worse than mismanaging heat exposure thinking it’s up to the workers to act subjectively correctly on their own behalf. It’s not! If you’re the employer you need objective evaluation and standards. It’s difficult and incriminating listening to an untrained supervisor discuss his view of why an employee’s organ failure and death occurred following excessive heat exposure.
