Abstract

The Electric Power Research Institute has developed a personal monitor for use by plant workers exposed to heat stress. The small device, which can easily be worn by a worker, assesses body temperature and heart rate and alerts the worker when either of the measures indicates excessive physiological strain. Use of this device enhances worker safety and improves productivity by permitting workers to work up to their safe limit on critical jobs.
