The radiation protection guide (RPG) number of 10 mW/cm2is generally accepted for normal environmental conditions. For conditions of moderate to severe heat stress, the guide number should be appropriately reduced. A proposal to reduce the guide number one mW/cm2for every temperature-humidity-index (THI) point above 70 (until 1 mW/cm2is reached) is examined in terms of heat stress.
