Thermal Stress

Thermal stress is the source of many workplace accidents. Each summer, workers face extreme heat conditions that can lead to heat stress. Because heat accumulation prevents them from keeping their bodies at an average temperature, they expose themselves to serious health risks and even death. Consult Santinel to protect your workers from thermal stress.
