OHS Guidelines for Workplace Thermal Comfort (Why Thermal Covers Are Important)

OHS Guidelines for Workplace Thermal Comfort (Why Thermal Covers Are Important)

OHS guidelines may be a little over-the-top if we’re talking about working in a regular old office in the city, but when it comes to industrial work and using heavy machinery, you can’t be safe enough. Thermal covers from Steamline help you adhere to the necessary OHS rules while improving energy efficiency and protecting equipment too. They can handle a wide range of temperatures, from cryogenic up to 1200 degrees Celsius. Here’s a few reasons why thermal covers from Steamline are an essential tool to implement at your business.

OHS guidelines

Thermal covers aren’t just a ‘handy tool’ to help your business run smoother and more efficiently: they’re an OHS requirement in the vast majority of cases. It’s a requirement for extremely hot or cold sections of machinery to be properly insulated in order to minimise the risk of accidents, which could result in serious injury.

Thermal comfort

OHS guidelines state that workers should be able to work in the most comfortable environment possible. In this sense, thermal covers help you to stick to OHS guidelines as they reduce ambient temperatures, creating a more comfortable workplace. You value your workers, and you don’t want them to have to work in unsafe or unhealthy environments.

Other benefits of thermal covers

Not only are thermal covers an integral tool for adhering to OHS guidelines in the workplace, but they also come with a variety of other benefits too. These include:

  • Convenience
    Steamline thermal covers are ultra convenient. They stay in place when you want them to and they’re easily removed when required. They can be taken off in a matter of minutes in order to gain access to machinery, whether it’s a routine inspection or emergency maintenance is required.
  • Energy efficiency
    Thermal covers from Steamline also have the benefit of energy efficiency. They insulate your machinery so that loss of heat is minimised, saving you energy and reducing business costs. It’s also much easier to keep the temperature consistent when using thermal covers from Steamline.
  • Machinery protection
    On top of that, thermal covers are important because they protect your machinery. Valves, pipes and exhausts are all susceptible to damage if not properly insulated by a thermal cover. Give your machinery the gift of a longer life when you invest in quality thermal covers from Steamline.

It’s not just about ticking a box here or dotting an ‘i’ there; thermal covers are about protecting your workers wherever possible and making sure your work environment is safe. Thermal covers from Steamline are of the highest quality and can be used in a range of industrial applications – from mining to marine and more.
