An Examination of Heat Injury Experience in an Open Hearth.
Proceedings of the Symposium on Standards for Occupational Exposures to Hot Environments 1973 Feb:272-304
Medical records of a large steel plant were examined to determine possible relationships between heat injury and other factors such as age, length of service and non-heat injuries. Approximately 17 percent of the workers studied had at least one heat episode. Dry bulb temperatures and vapor pressures frequently were rising for 24 hours or more prior to the occurrence of heat episodes.
