The legislation from some jurisdictions provides a range of acceptable temperatures for specific circumstances. In other cases, occupational health and safety jurisdictions use the Threshold Limit Values(NR36) for cold stress as published by the Government of Brazil.
Where there are no maximum exposure limits for cold working environments, there are guidelines that can be used to conduct work/task assessments, create safe work plans, and monitor conditions to protect the health and safety of workers who may be exposed to cold temperatures.
For example, the “work warm-up schedule” provides guidance on warm-up breaks that may be needed when working in cold conditions. The challenger is to manage thousands of workers and create a transparent evidence per worker about each schedule. Another point is to provide a way for managers to monitor and act when the schedule is not been followed.
Our customer spent several months carrying out preliminary testing of hardware and software, in order to ascertain the appropriate mix. The team selected Smartx HUB as a cloud platform and implement a full solution based on RFID portals at the workplaces hot and cold.
Smartx HUB RFID integrated platform is integrated with Human Resources database and factory access door.
Workers and supervisors involved with work in cold environments are informed about individual schedule daily on Dashboards and mobile solutions.
With the daily logs is possible to manage any rules violation according to the government rules and protect the company and the workers against health problems.
