Only qualified professionals, whether they are in-house staff, consultants, or from the local occupational health and safety regulatory agency, should perform the measurement.

Unfortunately, direct comparison between WBGT and humidex is not possible - there are no standard conversion tables or mathematical formulas to do such conversions.

The WBGT measurement takes into account air temperature, air movement, radiant heat and humidity.

There are direct-reading WBGT meters that are commercially available. The WBGT measurements can then be related to the physical demands of the job.

Emergency Preparedness Guides are based on presently available information, as well as current occupational safety and health provisions and standards.

ow ambient temperatures affect the flow characteristics of a lubricant.

For non-office workplace situations, occupational health and safety agencies generally use the Threshold Limit Values for Heat Stress published by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).

The units of heat stress exposure are expressed as Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) values in C.

An employer must consider the functional limitations that an individual with a thyroid disorder displays.

First, one must determine the areas in which the employee is having difficulty.
