Work environments with high temperatures are defined severely hot environments, even if there is also a high level of humidity in the air, in relation to the characteristics of the type of work being carried out, and the clothes worn by the workers. In these environments in order to avoid accumulating heat, considerable care must be taken in the thermo-regulation system of the body, through perspiration and vasodilatation mechanisms.
