Abstract
Standardized procedures for monitoring physiological parameters related to working in a hot environment are described. The techniques were developed and used by trained nurses over an 11 year period in aluminum plants. Measurements include: heart rate, core temperature, body weight losses due to sweating, and energy requirements of specific tasks determined by means of indirect calorimetry. Data are given on the energy cost of selected jobs in an aluminum reduction plant, and energy expenditure of aluminum workers in smelting plants.
