Beat the Texas Heat with 2 Cost-Efficient Warehouse Cooling Systems
During the summer months, Texas temperatures can get up to a scorching 110 + degrees F. Within a fast-paced warehouse, the high heat and strenuous physical activity drastically increases the risk of heat related illness.
Heat Risk for Warehouse Workers
When our bodies are exposed to high humidity, along with the heat and activity, our internal temperature rises which can cause heat rash or heat stroke.
Once internal temps reach 100.4 degrees, workers start to lose concentration, have difficulty focusing, and become irritable and sick. The risk increases for fainting and possible death if they don’t receive immediate care.
At a heat of 100+ degrees F, OSHA recommends additional precautions to be taken for workers. OSHA’s Heat Index Chart is helpful for employers to follow when estimating precaution.
