Abstract
The basic precept of the work practices standard for work in hot environments is that the workers' deep body temperature will not exceed 38 degrees centigrade, corresponding to 100.4 degrees fahrenheit. Since there is no socially acceptable instrument for monitoring workers' deep body temperature, two alternative ways for making sure that workers in hot jobs will not have to work under conditions which will cause deep body temperature to exceed 38 degrees centigrade are discussed, including establishing the combinations of climatic conditions and work intensities which will cause deep body temperature to rise above the limit, and mandatory work practices such as acclimatization.
