"improve the work environment"
Protecting workers’ health"The job of the occupational physician is to prevent illness and accidents in the work place. Within this context, my job involves providing regular consultation for employees of the firms that I am responsible for. I also visit their work place so as to evaluate the work environment", explains Doctor Laumond.
"When I visit a workplace, I always check a number of criteria, such as room temperature and humidity", she continues.
Improving work environnement"Humitest Hygro L Plus helps me recommend ways of improving the environment.
Visiting the work place enables me to get the full picture of the work environment of employees: seating, workstations, brightness, noise, etc... Instruments such as a luxmeter and sonometer come in very handy.
Both temperature and moisture play an significant role in determining the work environment quality. High temperatures or extreme dryness in a room can lead to eye problems, such as watering or itchy eyes.
Thanks to the Humitest Hygro L Plus, I can immediately measure the temperature and the percentage of air humidity. I use it as a reference and it helps me give advice on heating or air conditioning to improve the environment.
As my pen, this hygrometer is one of my tools for inspection visits."
