Problems of Evaluating Heat Stress in Situations Where Non- Acclimatized Workers are Exposed Infrequently to Partially Non- Predictable Heat Stress.
NIOSH 1976 Jan:163-167
Problems of evaluating heat stress are discussed for situations in which workers undertake jobs infrequently in an environment which is changeable and unpredictable, a situation fairly common in maintenance and repair work. A telephone cable hauling and splicing operation is described which takes place in underground tunnels. Temperature, humidity, and air velocity data are given. Oral temperature and pulse rates of workers were determined before and after three hours work in a tunnel.
