Title: Advancing Occupational Safety of Workers
Other Title: Investigation and Assessment of Heat Hazard in Hong Kong Slope Maintenance Construction Works
Authors: LI, Shing Fung Ronald
Issue Date: Nov-2020
Abstract: Ronald Li, from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has developed a comprehensive heat stress assessment framework and tools for construction workers in Hong Kong. The idea came from his internship at a local construction contractor. From his experience, constructors workers who suffer from high temperatures and strong sunlight weren't able to express the severity of heat stress clearly. Hence, a user-friendly and translational assessment tool was designed to represent the risk of heatstroke in one single number.
