Abstract
Study of the physiological responses to heat exposure in workers employed in a manufacturing facility where they are regularly exposed to process heat revealed no evidence of physiological stress at a wet bulb globe temperature of 81 degrees as evaluated by continuous monitoring of heart rates. Only one case of probable heat fatigue was recorded at a dry bulb temperature of 85 degrees. The results suggest that the recommended heat exposure limits of 79 degrees wet bulb for men and 76 degrees for women are lower than necessary to protect against excessive physiologic strain and against heat related illness.
