The cosinuss° Temp is one of the products that is very useful to monitor the health and working situations of employees. Within SPRINT@Work, firstly the °Temp is validated in a lab study and secondly in a real-life working situation of four types of employees;
- fire fighters,
- maintenance engineers working in warm and humid factories,
- chemical cleaners working in protective airtight suits and
- neighbourhood maintainers working in different weather conditions.
Their core body temperature was measured and additional the ambient temperature and humidity, and at the moment is being investigated how these parameters are developing over the day and how overheating of employees could be prevented.
