Title Work studies as basis for work profiles in inland waterway shipping
Original title Arbeitsstudien als Grundlage der Professiografie in der Binnenschiffahrt [in German]
Bibliographic information 1975, Vol.22, No.4-5, p.148-155. Illus. 24 ref.
Abstract The mental strain imposed on the master and the physical strain on the crew is considerably higher during short-haul trips than on long journeys with powered push-tugs. Work studies combined with recording and evaluation of environmental factors relevant to occupational hygiene and assessment of the arduousness of the work constitute the basis on which work profiles are elaborated.
