6.5. INTEGRATION WITH OTHER ELEMENTS OF THE HASP
The area of temperature extreme disorders or conditions impacts other areas of the HASP.
Temperature extreme considerations should be integrated with other concerns, such as personnel
protective equipment (PPE) early in the planning phase of any operation, and proper contingency
planning should be undertaken. Integrated areas should include:
Monitoring,
Medical surveillance,
Emergency response,
Confined space entry,
Buddy systems,
Decontamination of personnel, and
Site characterization operations.
The potential hazards associated with temperature extreme conditions can cause problems for
even the best designed work plan, and the potential for worker injury or death is always present.
Changes in ambient air temperatures, humidity, wind, and precipitation, can change a typical
operation into an immediate health hazard to workers. It may require logistical requirements to
supplement normal operations, including requirements such as increased water supply, on-call
medical personnel, and the ability for injured-worker retrieval teams to enter exclusionary zones.
