Thousands of workers fall victim to heat related injuries annually. Heat Stroke and Heat Exhaustion can occur quickly and early signs are often ignored as workers are focused on accomplishing their assigned tasks. These injuries can occur when work is being done outside and inside and are a major concern of EHS groups across a wide swath of industries.
Blueforce Development Corporation, partnering with Kestrel® Weather and Environmental Instruments, has created a technology solution that can prevent heat injuries and provides instant awareness to heat related risk levels in a work environment, enabling effective oversight both at the worksite and at a regional or even global centralized level. Join us for a 30-minute live webinar on Thursday July 27, 2017 where a live demo will be presented as well as content that includes:
- The Breadth of the Heat Injury Problem
- The Cost of Heat Injury to Business
- Regulatory Pressure
- The Blueforce/Kestrel RED-ALERT Solution
- Live Demo
The Blueforce WBGT Heat Illness Prevention solution has been designed through collaboration with EHS specialists specifically to provide an effective tool for monitoring workers and ensuring adherence to your organization’s heat safety protocols. Leveraging off the shelf smartphones and tablets and using the OSHA color coding system corresponding to risk levels, the system functions autonomously and enables supervisors both in the field and in centralized EHS monitoring centers with full awareness of heat risk.
