Abstract Study of safety suits worn by welders, automatic lathe operators, automobile mechanics, etc.) to assess the effect of this cloting on heat regulation mechanisms, the cardiovascular system, sweating dynamics, and microclimate changes within the clothing; the studies were carried out on students undergoing bicycle ergometer testing equivalent to the workload of a group of milling machine and lathe operators. It was possible to lay down maximum hours of work for the use of each type of suit studied and specify health protection measures to be taken by workers exposed to petroleum products.
