Too hot to handle!
June 12, 2016
So today was another very hot one! we measured area temperatures of 49 degrees with localized humidity of 49% which is way off the heat index chart!
We've been working for months on ensuring that worker welfare has been protected during the 'summer working months' and to date we see good levels of control with cold and chilled water coolers, igloo stations, shaded shelters, good ventilation, task rotation and regular area monitoring.
However, management education is key to ensuring that workers are not exposed to dangerous working conditions!
