Abstract
The ability to tolerate work in heat is influenced by a host of interacting factors, including sex and age. Studies on the effects of age and stress on heat stress are reviewed, and the data in general support the conclusion that there is a reduction in work-in- heat tolerance as a function of age, sex, physical fitness, and acclimatization.
