Standardization on the subject of "climate" affects occupational health and safety when, for example, it deals with the exposure of the worker to cold or warm ambient conditions. Measuring methods, terminology or ranges which can be endured are specified, and exposure times and rest periods proposed. KAN monitors this field of standardization to ensure that no regulations on occupational medical care or on the stipulation of recovery periods are included in standards, since these are the responsibility of the individual Member States.
