Abstract
Problems of evaluating heat stress are discussed for situations in which workers undertake jobs infrequently in an environment which is changeable and unpredictable, a situation fairly common in maintenance and repair work. A telephone cable hauling and splicing operation is described which takes place in underground tunnels. Temperature, humidity, and air velocity data are given. Oral temperature and pulse rates of workers were determined before and after three hours work in a tunnel.
