Data on Industrial Experience Related to a Heat Standard: Chemicals.
Proceedings of the Symposium on Standards for Occupational Exposures to Hot Environments 1973 Feb:351-369

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.
