AVTECH SOFTWARE INC.’s Room Alert environment-monitoring platform proactively monitors environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, flood, power, smoke, and more, for large and small businesses worldwide. As temperatures continue to rise and organizations like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) warn of worker safety due to heat illness concerns, AVTECH advises employers to rely on Room Alert to help warn of conditions that could harm employees.
Room Alert can augment any organization's business continuity plan, as it allows users to fully monitor environmental conditions in their operations that may cause unexpected downtime, damage, or safety concerns. All Room Alert monitors are provided with free firmware updates as well as lifetime support.
OSHA recently launched an awareness campaign to warn employers of the dangers of heat-related illnesses, and how current conditions are leading to an increase in incidents caused by high temperatures and heat index (also known as the "feels like" temperature.) Part of OSHA's guidance includes monitoring conditions to warn of situations that could be hazardous to employees.
Room Alert offers both temperature- and heat index-monitoring along with guidance features that allow users to set alerts based around accepted heat index thresholds with just a few clicks. By receiving immediate alerts to potentially hazardous conditions, employers can take steps to ensure employees are adequately hydrated, taking breaks, and aware of conditions that may impact themselves and their fellow co-workers.
"Our customers have been using Room Alert to monitor temperature and heat index in their facilities for years," explained AVTECH president and COO Richard Grundy. "Employee safety is top of mind for warehouses, manufacturing environments, and other workplaces that tend to experience heat and high humidity on a regular basis. With recent heat waves and increased climate changes, we've seen several other industries take proactive steps considering the latest OSHA guidance to install monitoring for employee safety. With built-in heat index guidance in our monitoring and alerting dashboard and software, we're proud to know that Room Alert is trusted to help keep people safe across the world."
In addition to Room Alert environment monitors, AVTECH offers digital, switch, and analog sensors to help users monitor as many environmental conditions as possible.
