Thermal comfort is subjective, but generally, conditions above 26 degrees C and, relative humidity higher than 60 per cent may cause heat stress which may require controls to be initiated.

      Posted by Unknown on Feb 5th 2013

      This free product was a good one for our clients as it is something that they can develop into their own document without it appearing that we are pushing our company OHS onto them thus allowing them to manage their employees better when hot weather strikes.

      with the current heat wave most of Australia is experiencing the SWMS heat stress came out just in time for our staff to be warned of the risks involved while working outdoors in heat wave conditions. Being aware of the symptons will avert any long term or disatrous consequences of working outdoors in the hot weather conditions.
