Heat stress studies in aluminum reduction plants.
Proceedings of the Symposium on Standards for Occupational Exposures to Hot Environments 1973 Feb:217-239
Measurements of body temperature, heart rate, and energy expenditure were made on workers in aluminum reduction plants. Data suggest that workers were not heat stressed despite the disproportionate number of wet bulb globe temperatures exceeding the 79 degree Fahrenheit standard. Physiological measurements of body temperature, heart rate, and body weight changes generally confirm the lack of a heat stress in this working situation.
