||The work flow and the electrocardiogram were recorded throughout whole shifts for six male refuse collection workers who transported and emptied 1.1m3 refuse containers. The work pulse rate increased with the work rate and reached such high values that regular work breaks should have been provided. The necessary duration of the breaks was calculated to be 10min per working hour. A transportation-capacity model suitable for determination of both logistical and ergonomic transportation capacities is provided for planning the deployment of refuse workers.
