Temperature and humidity monitoring record
Digital hygrometers are placed in the areas where temperature and humidity have to be monitored.
Ensure that the hygrometers are calibrated.
Hygrometers are fixed to the point where the highest temperature is observed during the temperature mapping.
Record the observed temperature and humidity at the beginning of the day (8.00 – 9.00), in the afternoon (15.00 – 16.00), and in the evening (20.00 – 21.00) in Attachment -II.
Temperature and humidity parameters should be within an acceptable range (ref. Attachment I).
If the temperature rises up to 24.5°C, warehouse personnel should inform the engineering department that will take further action.
