  • It was a Great, Green Year: Identification of a Chlorophyll Dephytylase That Functions in Chlorophyll Turnover

    Green may have been the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013 (http://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year- 2013), but 2016 was a great year for papers on chlorophyll research, at The Plant Cell and beyond. In this year, we saw a pile of interesting papers examining chlorophyll degradation, including its regulatory mechanisms. For example, to identify transcription ...

  • Empirical validation of a new heat stress index

    Thermal stress is a well-recognised health hazard in the workplace. In addition to the health deficits, working in the heat can impact significantly on the productivity of some industries which are located in harsh environments. A long-standing dilemma in OHS has been the specification of what constitutes a safe working environment. The current indices used to evaluate the environment are either ...

  • New Measures to Protect Workers from Heat Stress in China

    Work system to control heat exposure It is stipulated in the Measures that working time under high temperature shall be controlled by employers, unless exceptional cases of damaging life & property security and public interest exist. When the temperature reaches 40°C, outdoor work shall cease. When it stands at 37°C to 40°C, outdoor work shall not exceed more than ...

  • Heat Stress In The Workplace

    Heta stress monitoring, why you should monitor, effects of heat stress and how to combat it in the workplace. Why should you measure heat stress? If you or your employees work in hot environments you may be susceptible to heat stress. Heat stress us caused when the temperature of a surround area or the core body temperature is raised resulting in dangerous high levels. ...

  • Self-pacing as a protective mechanism against the effects of heat stress

    Objective: Self-pacing or avoidance of physiological strain by adjustment of work rate may be an important protective behaviour for manual workers in severe thermal conditions. Data were gathered at a number of industrial sites in the United Arab Emirates to assess whether self-pacing takes place in these workers. Methods: Heart rate and aural temperature were monitored in 150 subjects for 12 h ...

  • Assessment of cracking in concrete due to hydration heat and autogenous shrinkage

    An experimental study was conducted to simulate the generation of thermal stresses due to hydration heat and restraint by using a thermal stress measuring device (TSD). The net effects of time-dependent properties of hardening concrete can be well incorporated in TSD due to simultaneous development of temperature and corresponding stress in restrained specimen. Moreover, experiments were ...

  • Hydration status of expatriate manual workers during summer in the Middle East

    Background: Implicit in all indices used for risk assessment in the prevention of heat stress is the assumption that workers arc healthy and well hydrated; studies in Australian mine workers have shown that this is not the case. Where workers arc poorly hydrated, the level of protection offered by management strategies based primarily on environmental monitoring is compromised. ...

  • A valid method for comparing rational and empirical heat stress indices

    No single heat stress index has gained universal acceptance within the past 20 years., despite extensive research. It is currently difficult to directly and quantitatively compare the many rational and empirical indices that are available, which results in confusion and a reluctance to change to a different index. A method is developed using the concept of limiting metabolic rate which allows ...
