Abstract
During the summer of 1972, studies were conducted to evaluate effects of industrial heat stress as assessed by reports of clinical cases of heat illness among workers on hot jobs. Of 122 cases reports received, 96 were submitted by plants representing the aluminum industry, and 26 from the steel industry. Analysis indicated that these reports consisted largely of cases of heat exhaustion, and included no cases of heat stroke. A recommendation is made that an admission temperature should always be taken and recorded for any case of suspected heat illness.
