Physiologic responses to work stress in steelworkers.
Department of Occupational Health, Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Terminal Progress Report, 1973 Jan; :1-6
Results are presented of a study to determine: individual and environmental factors underlying physiological strains in industrial workers on hot jobs; criteria for determining excessive strains; and standards for heat exposure in industry. Studies in an open hearth area of a steel plant have yielded heart rate data under high temperatures which are valid indicators of potential excessive strain.
