Heat Stress Article Collection
Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene
To protect workers this summer, the Editor in Chief of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene (JOEH) has assembled articles for a Virtual Issue on the topic of Heat Stress.
The following selection includes a brand new article in which CDC/NIOSH authors examined the thermoregulatory responses of study participants conducting an exercise to adjust exposure limits to adjust for different clothing types. Another 2019 paper analyses the utility of the NOAA Heat Index compared to the WBGT measurements typically used to assess the risk of heat stress for workers. Additional articles on this list provide insights into risk factors of worker age, other clothing types, air velocity, and industry-specific case studies relevant to helping occupational hygienists protect workers this summer.
