Abstract
Collection of papers dealing with heat stress in industry, including: whether or not a heat stress standard is needed, the methodologies for assessing heat exposure, and the results of laboratory and industry heat stress studies. Specific topics include dehydration, rehydration, and exercising, strains of exposure to heat, limits of exposure to work in hot climates, effects of age and sex on heat tolerance, heat disorders, occupational exposures to hot environments, environmental measurements, physiologic monitoring of heart rate, sweating, body temperature, and metabolic cost during the work situation. Time weighted average exposure, labor views on hot jobs, limits for exposure to heat, and practical problems of implementing the NIOSH proposed standard.
