||Contribution to the study of the medical and ergonomic aspects of disc-jockey work
||Contribution à l'étude des aspects médicaux et ergonomiques du travail de disc-jockey [in French]|
||Faculté mixte de médecine et de pharmacie de Rouen, France, 1982. 67p. Illus. 11 ref.
||This M.D. thesis defines the hazards inherent in a disc jockey's job, which is to control the visual and musical environment of a discotheque. A description of the workplace, tasks, and working conditions (physical environment, physical and mental stress, psychosocial aspects, working hours) is followed by measurements of the noise, lighting and temperature levels in the workplace and the heart rate and state of health of the personnel. Noise is the major source of stress, and it is hard to protect the disc jockey from it. Medical supervision should include a respiratory function test every year, and a determination of serum gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase at unspecified intervals. Prevention includes informing disc jockeys of the hazards of noise, tobacco and alcohol.
