Announcing the Heat Stress Alarm

coolshirt-resizedTo help with heat stress and to save lives, CoolShirt Systems has developed a heat stress alarm that sends an audible alert, warning workers when their core body temperature is reaching dangerous levels - before they begin to feel dizzy, headachy or nauseous.

It lets workers know when they need to cool down, helping them work more safely and maintain their level of performance longer in hot environments.

Only 1.5” in diameter, it’s worn against the skin and held in place by a hardhat, cap, visor or moisture- resistant adhesive bandage.

SafeTemp®, from CoolShirt Systems, is the only self-alert temperature monitoring sensor.

Keep Workers Cool and Productive in Extreme Temperatures


Personal Air Conditioners

The vest can be worn under other PPE, as needed, and the temperature can be adjusted by the wearer, even with gloved hands.

PACs are ideal for confined spaces, boiler operations, welding, blasting, painting, hazardous waste removal and many other industrial operations.
