Título Comparison of subjective symptoms and hot prevention measures in summer between traffic control workers and construction workers in Japan
Información bibliográfica Jan. 2007, Vol.45, No.1, p.91-99. Illus. 33 ref.
Resumen A survey on heat-related subjective symptoms and protection measures against heat during outdoor work in summer was conducted among 204 traffic control workers and 115 construction workers, all male, in Japan. Their workloads were estimated at relative metabolic rates of 1-2 and 2-4, respectively. A self-administered questionnaire was used to collect information on age, occupational career, working habit, present or past history of diseases, individual preventive measures to the heat, and subjective symptoms during summer. Findings are discussed. Some preventive countermeasures to improve working conditions in outdoor work environments are presented.
