Content: The effects of atmospheric influences on human sensation of thermal conditions depend on the interaction of heat, moisture, and air at the surrounding of a person. Yet, the living body constantly produces heat and this must be transferred to the environment to maintain the heat balance. In hot summer days, workers on construction sites are facing various health problems including heat stroke and heat induced illnesses. The assessment of heat stress in the local environment of a construction site is important for prevention and control of risk to health due to exposure to heat from various sources. Case examples will be discussed. The talk will be conducted in English.
