Abstract
Performance on four sedentary tasks was monitored during temperatures of 85 degrees Fahrenheit, 95 degrees Fahrenheit, and 105 degrees Fahrenheit wet bulb globe temperature for work periods up to 2 hours. Results were compared with limits recommended for occupational safety and health regulations. The results suggest that this limit is not a single line, but rather a range of temperature-time combinations. Further, man's compensating nature during short exposures supports a higher temperature limit for brief work bouts.
