There’s a high potential for inducing heat stress in workers for work involving:
- high air temperatures
- radiant heat sources
- high humidity
- direct physical contact with hot objects, or
- strenuous physical activities.
Sensidyne’s Heat Shield is a wireless welt bulb globe temperature (WBGT) meter that simplifies the complex measurements of worker heat stress.
The LSI HeatShield system is an advanced worker heat stress instrument for Health & Safety and Industrial Hygiene professionals.
In a compact and rugged system, Heat Shield integrates globe/wet bulb/dry bulb temperatures and relative humidity sensors to display and store a WBGT indoor and outdoor index, heat index and humidex measurements.
HeatShield is available with either a 2 inch (5 cm) or 6 inch (15 cm) globe.
