Abstract
At wet bulb globe temperatures of approximately 81 degrees Fahrenheit, no evidence of excessive physiological stress was found in four jobs as evaluated by continuously monitored heart rates. A special program to identify heat-related illness revealed only one mild case of probable heat fatigue. Results suggest that the recommended heat exposure limit may be lower than necessary.
