Athletes, construction workers, firefighters, military and others people who work outdoors will benefit from the heat stress monitor. It will help avoid or reduce injuries and may also prevent death.

The device has the capability of monitoring a range of weather variables, such as temperature, relative humidity, altitude, barometric pressure, wind speed, and crosswind. It also tracks the thermal work limit (TWL), mean radiant temperature (MRT) and wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT). It sounds an alarm when performance of any physical activity may be dangerous to the personnel.

KestrelMeters.com’s spokesman, Bob Smith, states that tracking the temperature of the environment alone was not sufficient to address the risk due to heat stress. Many variables and factors have to be monitored for getting a complete and accurate picture of the heat and the potential affect that it may have on people working outdoors.

Kestrel’s handheld weather meters and wind meters are designed for portability, durability and ease of usage. These devices are designed for HVAC techs, farmers, military personnel, firefighters, athletes and others.

The Kestrel Meter 4400 Heat Stress Monitor is available at the online retailer website, KestrelMeters.com.
