Surveillance of work environment and heat stress assessment using meteorological data

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Health surveillance and workplace surveillance are two related but different aspects of occupational health services. The assessment of heat stress using heat indices and thermal models in connection with meteorological data is an important part of surveillance of workplace heat. The assessment of heat exposure provides the basis for occupational health services. Workers should have health surveillance if the high heat stress cannot be reduced.
