Working in Thermal Environments

Working in Thermal Environments
BOHS are holding the next in their series of Technical Topic Events. The title for 2019 is 'Working in Thermal Environments'.


BOHS is to host a technical topic update on ‘Working in Thermal Environments’ on 12 June 2019 in Manchester.  The day will cover technical aspects (such as an update on international thermal environmental standards), practical case studies (covering real world examples in petrochemicals and elsewhere) and new research (including the European HEAT-SHIELD project, looking at health and work productivity in the context of global warming).  There will also be discussion sessions for you to raise issues that you are currently dealing with in your own work environments and what further activity and support you’d like to see from BOHS in this area.

Speakers confirmed include:

  • Dr Simon Hodder current Chair of the ISO technical committee on ergonomics of the physical environment
  • Prof George Havenith Loughborough University
  • Dr Claire Eglin Portsmouth University
  • Amanda Parker Ineos
