HEATALERT™

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HeatAlert™ Questions

Why would we need the HeatAlert™ at our facility, and not just use a thermometer?

The HeatAlert™ is the first of its kind in heat index detection, as it does much more than just a thermometer.The HeatAlert will monitor temperature and humidity, using wet bulb/dry bulb algorithms, convert the reading to Heat Index (NOAA/OSHA standard), alerting you and your employees when it is at moderate risk (amber flashing LED), and high risk (red flashing LED). This allows you to know when to enact your companies Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), in accordance to the NOAA/OSHA standards, keeping your facility safer from heat-related illnesses.

What is heat index, and why does this matter to us?

Heat index is described as: “a measure indicating the level of discomfort the average person is thought to experience as a result of the combined effects of the temperature and humidity of the air.” We need to be able to know the heat index, not just the temperature, as this is what NOAA/OSHA uses as a measurement of when to start to use caution for your facility to prevent heat-related illness.

What is the lead time?

Expect a 3-4 week lead time

Where would I use the HeatAlert™?

There are two versions of the HeatAlert™, one for indoors, one for outdoors. The indoor is meant to be used in a facility that can get hot, such as a processing or manufacturing plant, around heavy indoor machinery that can heat a building up, etc. The outdoor application is great for construction sites that are in warmer regions, military uses on base or overseas on deployment for training exercises, etc.

Where can I buy one?

You can either purchase the HeatAlert™ directly through us, or one of our many safety distributors, which you can find on our website.
