Abstract
A procedural guide is presented for industrial hygiene engineers in evaluation of specific hot jobs when the work is regularly scheduled and differences in daily heat strain are mostly attributable to changes in the outside weather. This situation applies to jobs that require manual handling (physical stress) for transfer of materials at a pace and in a location fixed by the arrangement of production machinery. Evaluation is presented of a job which involves manual transfer of billets discharged every 40 seconds from the portal of a furnace. The results of this engineering analysis point up the factors responsible for heat stress and indicate relative need for correction and directions to be taken in devising control measures.
