Title Engine room staff and exposure to thermal radiation on ships
Bibliographic information 1981, Vol.32, No.1-2, p.87-92. Illus. 6 ref.
Abstract Assessment of the degree to which engine room workers on board ship were exposed to infrared radiation. Tests were made to determine the spatial distribution of infrared irradiation in the working zone, and the temperature of the air and the surfaces of the radiation sources were measured. From the data collected, it was possible to assess the thermal stress to which engine room workers are exposed in both permanent and temporary jobs.
