Estimated work ability in warm outdoor environments depends on the chosen heat stress assessment metric

Brode, Peter; Fiala, Dusan; Lemke, Bruno; Kjellstrom, Tord

Description

With a view to occupational effects of climate change, we performed a simulation study on the influence of different heat stress assessment metrics on estimated workability (WA) of labour in warm outdoor environments. Whole-day shifts with varying workloads were simulated using as input meteorological records for the hottest month from four cities with prevailing hot (Dallas, New Delhi) or warm-humid conditions (Managua, Osaka), respectively. In addition, we considered the effects of adaptive...[Show more]
