||A review of the suggested wet bulb globe temperature adjustment for encapsulating protective clothing
||Jan. 1996, Vol.57, No.1, p.58-61. 10 ref.
||A review is presented of research relevant to the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists' (ACGIH) suggested wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT) adjustment to threshold limit values (TLV) for workers in vapour barrier encapsulative protective clothing. This adjustment was recommended to be 10░ according to the 1990 ACGIH guidelines but was not included in the 1991 guidelines. Six studies were reviewed comparing heart rate and rectal temperature increase over time. Findings support the suggested WBGT TLV adjustment of 10░ when wearing encapsulating protective clothing.
