Abstract Results of an ergonomic survey in the compressor rooms of 2 Yugoslav petroleum refineries. Measurements taken at different points show that the noise levels and effective temperatures to which the personnel is exposed exceed the tolerable limits. The results make it possible to adapt the design of compressors to the requirements of occupational hygiene.
