Specifically, the purpose of this study is to identify all the thermal stress indicators developed during the last century and thereafter comparing them with physiological data (core temperature, mean skin temperature, and heart rate) collected from hundreds of workers who work in different industrial sectors (agriculture, manufacture, tourism, construction, military, mining, and public servants) across the world. Condition being studied: Thermal stress indicator developed to protect workers who perform work in the heat.
