OSHA and Cal/OSHA are focused on heat stress compliance in the workplace. July 2023, OSHA launched a national emphasis program to prevent workplace hazards in warehouses, processing facilities, distribution centers, and high-risk retail establishments. Exposure to excessive heat is considered by OSHA a recognized hazard from which the employers must protect employees. Does your company’s heat stress prevention & monitoring program include active heat temperature & humidity monitoring and record retention, or 24/7 email alerts? YoLink does! YoLink Commercial Solutions enhances a company's established Heat Stress Prevention Program by adding a proactive heat monitoring & alert element for OSHA compliance. And if you need a written heat stress policy, we can assist.

Temperature sensor mounting areas to be considered for heat stress temperature monitoring:

(Actual site should be based on your review of your employee work areas.)

The ambient air temperature reading will be accurate indicator using a single heat & humidity sensor unit installed at each area of concern throughout the facility.

Large Areas could need more than 1 sensor. Monitor Condensed / Enclosed areas periodically for adjustments. Install One Test Site Sensor at consistently Hot locations, or Employee’s work location, this should give an accurate sample of the Ambient Air Temperature for mapping.

Suggested sensor sites & areas of concern to be considered for monitoring
