Calculating workplace WBGT from meteorological data: A tool for climate change assessment

Lemke, Bruno; Kjellstrom, Tord


The WBGT heat stress index has been well tested under a variety of climatic conditions and quantitative links have been established between WBGT and the work-rest cycles needed to prevent heat stress effects at the workplace. While there are more specific methods based on individual physiological measurements to determine heat strain in an individual worker, the WBGT index is used in international and national standards to specify workplace heat stress risks. In order to assess time trends of...[Show more]
