Objectives: To examine the associations of borg’s scale with actual heart rates of workers and energy consumption during their physical work.

Methods: A total of 72 workers performing physical activities in postal service, ceramic manufacturing, and metal manufacturing participated in heart rate measurement for 1 work shift using the activity meter(A360) and responded to a borg’s scale questionnaire.

Results: In consistent with previous findings, we presented high correlation between borg’s scale and energy consumption measures among workers performing physical activities(r=0.89) while post-work average heart rate showed nearly no correlation with post-work borg’s scale (r=0.09). We proposed a set of adjustments when using borg’s scale to estimate physical workload for those workers engaged in physical activities during the majority of their work shift.

Conclusions: Our findings suggest that a caution should be paid to when using Borg’s scale to estimate heart rates during physical activities as well as energy consumption as the product of heart rate measurements.
