Abstract
The hazards of heat exposure are reviewed. Heat stress standards promulgated in the United States are evaluated in light of four cases of acute fatal heat stroke and one case of acute heat exhaustion which occurred in industrial settings. Three types of chronic heat illnesses, those associated with chronic aftereffects, those linked to the cumulative effects of long term exposure, and those caused by residence and work in especially hot climatic regions, are discussed studies involving steel and foundry workers are outlined. Methods for preventing heat illness are also discussed.
