Speaker: Robert C. (Bob) Scholz, P.E., CIH
Hawaiian Theme night. All guests are encouraged to wear summer themed clothing. Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts and coconut shell bras are acceptable. Leis will be provided.
Aloha members. With the cold February winds blowing we thought it would be fun to think of the warmer days ahead and have a Hawaiian theme meeting to discuss heat stress. Bob Scholz is a mechanical engineer and CIH with 42 years of experience in helping industry manage worker exposures to air contaminants, noise and heat. Much of his experience has been in the metals industry, where all of these exposure risks are present. Bob has authored publications based on his experience, one of which is entitled, “Establishing a Foundry Heat Stress Management Program.” The premise of this presentation is that heat disorders are preventable by managing heat stress. The specifics of that management will be detailed and discussed. Some of the key aspects of heat stress management include: Personal preparedness for hot work activity, Managing work activity to control heat buildup in the body, Recognizing and responding to early warning signs that the body’s ability to compensate to the heat load has been exceeded, Heat strain assessment and recovery, and Risk assessment and proactive response to heat stress risks
