||This study is an evaluation of the validity of a personal heat strain monitor in predicting body-core temperature. The rational basis for development of such a monitor is due to the large interindividual variability of workers' responses to heat and because working in heat is hard to manage safely, taking also into account differences in the protective suits. The results are that the validated monitor underestimates rectal temperature prediction for both vapour permeable and vapour barrier suits, but with the latter clothing it is more effective in alerting workers to incipient danger.
