As we approach summer, the outdoor sports schedules fill up, the AC kicks in, and workers in warehouses and hot factory environments start longing for the cold of winter.
This e-news is dedicated toward improving worker safety in hot environments and reducing energy costs by tuning ventilation systems during these heavy-use months.
How do we measure up?
One of our top goals is to make sure you have an easy rental experience.
As one consultant reported: "When I’m on site, I need to reach someone who knows how to help me. I had several questions and Matt was great! I called him more than once during this job."
Need the calibration documents? We include them with every rental. Forget to keep a copy? We'll e-mail you. Need help with the instrument, the software, or connecting with your PC? Call us. We'll walk you through it.

Preventing Heat-Related Injury or Illness
Our firefighter customers know a thing or two about working in hot environments. And the first lesson we’ve learned from them is to know the points at which heat-related illnesses occur.
Awareness and worker education will play a large part in reducing workplace heat-related illnesses. The information is available to help you gauge the necessity of rest periods and other protective measures (ventilation control changes) during extreme heat conditions.
This chart, from OSHA’s website, provides a basic guideline for risk levels and protective measures. Click the links for OSHA recommendations for worker health and safety in high temperature environments.
To learn more, read OSHA's employer guide to using the heat index.
3M QuestTemp products are designed to provide the data to monitor these situations and take action based on their readings.
When you’re ready to put your heat stress management plan into action, call RAECO Rents at 866-736-8347 for area and personal heat stress monitors.
Time to Tune Your HVAC System
Proper air flow reduces energy costs
As we switch from heat to air conditioning, are some workers complaining about being hot while others are cold? If so, you could be wasting energy on a poorly balanced ventilation system.
Now is the perfect time to check your ventilation system for efficiency. Before the heat of summer fully kicks in, test your system for failure points.
Is it properly circulating outdoor air? Too much? Too little? Have supply or return vents been blocked? Our suite of ventilation testing tools can help you pinpoint problems.
It's like Cracker Jack: A treat inside every box!
RAECO Rents goal is to treat you right, from providing top-brand instruments to affordable shipping to goodies in every rental kit. Look for the Matt's chocolate chip cookie in the case with your next rental. Isn't it cool? A local bakery named their company after me!
