Suggested Frequency of Physiological Monitoring for Fit and
Acclimatized Workers
Adjusted Temperature
Normal Work Clothing
Impermeable Clothing
Calculation
90 F (32.2 C) or above
After each 45 minutes of work
After each 15 minutes of work
87.5 - 90.0 F
After each 60 minutes of work
After each 30 minutes of work
(30.8 - 32.2 C)
82.5 - 87.5 F
After each 90 minutes of work
After each 60 minutes of work
(28.1 - 30.8 C)
77.5 - 82.5 F
After each 120 minutes of work
After each 90 minutes of work
(25.3 - 28.1 C)
72.5 - 77.5 F
After each 150 minutes of work
After each 120 minutes of work
(22.5 - 25.3 C)
The following parameters should be used when monitoring workers:
Heart rate - Count the radial pulse as early as possible in the rest period to ensure a more
accurate reading. If the heart rate exceeds 110 beats per minute at the beginning of the
rest period, shorten the next work cycle by one-third and keep the rest period at the same
length. If, at the end of the following work period, the heart rate still exceeds 110 beats
per minute, shorten the work period again by one-third.
Oral Temperature - The utilization of oral temperature applies to the time immediately
after the worker leaves the contamination reduction zone. Using a clinical thermometer,
take the temperature for three minutes. If the oral temperature exceeds 99.6 F (37.6
C), shorten the next work cycle by one-third, without a change to the rest period. If the
oral temperature still exceeds 99.6 F (37.6 C) at the end of the following work period,
shorten the next work cycle by one-third. Do not permit a worker to perform duties
requiring a semipermeable or impermeable garment if the oral temperature exceeds 100.6
F (38.1 C).
Ear Canal Readings - Ear canal readings are a valid method to monitor the temperature of
workers who remain in the contamination reduction zone.
Body Water Loss - Measure body weight to see if enough fluids are being consumed to
prevent dehydration.
