A safe, healthy working environment – this is something most of us take for granted. But in some professions, heat, strenuous physical activity and other extreme conditions are all part of the average workday. When safety and protection present a challenge, intelligent technology can provide valuable support.
Our climate is changing, and heat waves, floods and other extreme weather conditions are becoming increasingly common. These changes are apparent throughout the world, and they have a major impact on working environments in affected countries and regions. Working in intense heat, for instance, places enormous strain on our bodies. Heat-related symptoms reduce our capacity for concentration and decision-making, which can be a danger not just to the individual employee but to their whole team. That’s why caleragt inside are an essential part of work equipment in many sectors.
The sensors are small and compact so they can be placed directly on the skin as a medical patch or integrated into any wearable. calera® sensor technology was developed in close cooperation with experts from industry, science and medicine, and successfully tested in over ten clinically approved studies.
See for yourself with four available validation studies:
Conventional safety management technologies generally concentrate on minimizing risks within a given working environment. This makes sense, but it’s also expensive, and under extreme conditions these technologies become more maintenance-intensive and less effective.
calera® heat flux sensors go to work right where they’re needed. The sensor technology, integrated into a compact wearable, makes monitoring core body temperature for crews out on deployment a standard process, thereby increasing workplace safety and reducing absences for companies, rescue operations, and other emergency services.
