Learn About Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) and Heat Stress ☀️

Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT)

  • Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) is a comprehensive index designed to evaluate the impact of temperature, humidity, wind speed, and solar radiation on human health.

  • Forecasting Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) is crucial yet complex. It’s all about predicting how hot it will feel, taking into account multiple factors such as humidity, wind, and sunlight.

  • This guide highlights appropriate WBGT thresholds and discusses suitable activity modifications to minimize heat stress.

Heat Stress

  • Heat stress occurs when the body’s internal temperature control mechanisms are overwhelmed by external environmental conditions. It is a significant safety concern, especially in hot weather or high-heat work settings.
