«We must act quickly and protect the most exposed and fragile workers from heat waves. An agreement between the Government and the social partners is urgently needed in the next few hours to be implemented in a Decree in the wake of the safety protocols activated during the Covid. Cigo also below 35 degrees, specific Dpi. We need to change the organization of work, remodulate schedules, rotate people, ensure breaks, deliver adequate equipment and clothing, more health surveillance, use smart working. The ad hoc ordinances of many Regions that have stopped work activities at risk in the time slots from 12 to 16 are good» writes the general secretary of the Cisl Luigi Sbarra on Facebook.

A red dot arrives for workers
In the meantime, Inail and Cnr have presented a new tool to monitor the heat alert for workers' health. It's called "Worklimate 2.0" and it's a heat stress prediction system for occupational risk screening, a sort of map with red dots. On the dedicated website there are maps that provide, for up to three days, the geographical areas where the greatest risks deriving from the heat are concentrated, coloring them bright red. The danger scale for workers goes from green, no risk, to red, maximum level, passing through yellow and orange, which respectively indicate a low and a moderate risk

The platform was presented during a seminar organized by INAIL. With a greater level of detail it also allows you to know in advance the hours to avoid by type of work, from the heaviest with intense physical activity, to the lightest ones with moderate physical activity, also being able to distinguish whether you work in the sun or in the shade.
