Abstract
Report presenting correlations developed by NIOSH to provide a tool for comparing results of studies relating human responses to various environmental heat levels in which subjects have used several indices. The five indices of environmental heat stress that are correlated with each other are Corrected Effective Temperature (CET), Effective Temperature Corrected for Radiation (eTCR), Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT); Web Globe Temperature (WGT), and the Belding Belding-Hatch Stress Index (HSI).
