Studies of worker heat stress and strain in various countries have found that heat exposure is often likely to exceed the upper threshold limit of international standards. Heat strain data such as oral temperature, recovery heart rate, average heart rate and other work‐related information were investigated to study the impact of strenuous tasks in a hot climate. The study attempted to establish relationships between exposure to heat and heat strain data which could be used as the basis of ergonomic intervention and low‐cost solutions to the avoidance or mitigation of occupational risks.
