Connected Heat Exposure Monitoring  

Expanding Solutions for Industrial Hygienists and Other OEHS Professionals  


Attorneys general from seven states have called for OSHA to issue an emergency temporary standard to protect workers from heat exposure. As warmer work seasons approach, so does the need for easy-to-use, reliable tools that keep workers safe from heat injuries. injuries caused by heat stress. In addition, an April 2022 OSHA National Emphasis Program (NEP)--Outdoor and Indoor Heat-related Hazards was established to identify and eliminate or reduce exposures to heat-related hazards, both indoors and outdoors, resulting in illnesses, injuries, and deaths, through inspection targeting, outreach, and compliance assistance.  

Occupational heat exposure is a global issue and has been a challenge to monitor. Tools like Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT), heat index calculators, and wearable physiological monitors provide a more in-depth way to monitor and analyze worker conditions. Using all the tools available helps to prioritize worker safety without decreasing productivity. With that in mind, the award-winning SlateSafety BAND V2 is a valuable tool in the wearable physiological monitor category and the BEACON V2 is a new environmental heat monitor that works in conjunction to provide a complete heat safety system. . 

The SlateSafety BAND V2 is an arm-worn monitor that provides 24/7 connected real-time physiological monitoring of heart rate, exertion levels, and core temperature. The SlateSafety platform acts as an early-warning system for heat strain and overexertion to help prevent heat-induced injuries. This easy-to-use technology can optimize work/rest cycles for workers in extreme heat, which promotes safety and OSHA compliance while maintaining productivity. The powerful web-based platform maintains connectivity and the new Go Mobile App lets you keep an active eye on your team. Keep your workers connected and protected in real-time with this easy-to-deploy solution.

The BEACON V2 Environmental Heat Monitor provides an affordable alternative to WBGT and streamlines site-wide coverage for localized environmental data. Access countless real-time temperature and humidity data points instantly. BEACON V2 integrates seamlessly with the SlateSafety V2 system with software platform and a suite of accessories. When paired with the BAND V2, the BEACON V2 acts as a coarse real-time location system (RTLS) allowing for the indoor location of workers.

How Does BAND V2 work? 

The BAND: Workers wear the lightweight, comfortable, and secure armband unit on the upper arm. It feels much like an Apple Watch! Sensors measure worker heart rate, core body temperature, and exertion levels while he or she works. The BAND V2 alerts both the worker and you when it reaches the threshold you set (or use the ACGIH® physiological monitoring threshold) so that you can take immediate steps to keep the worker safe.  

The Platform: The powerful and intuitive web-based platform maintains connectivity so that you can monitor teams of workers, analyze trends, manage exertion levels, and automate work/rest cycles. 

The Go Mobile App: Provides snapshots of your workforce’s biometric data at a glance and allows you to view nearby devices in cell-denied areas on your phone or tablet. See the video walk through. The SlateSafety Go Mobile is available in the App Store and Google Play

The BEACON V2 has adhesive or screws on the back for placement in any location. It is IP67-rated, so safe for outdoor placement. Turned on prior to shipping, BEACON V2 provides one year of service on its battery. Once placed, the BEACON V2 transmits data through the V2 ecosystem comprising the GATEWAY V2 or BAND V2 near BEACON V2 for live data transmission to the SlateSafety Web App. View data from the BEACON V2 on the Live Page of the SlateSafety Web App. Set up and name BEACON V2 through the SlateSafety Web App.
