||Mar. 1998, Vol.29, No.3, p.16-19. Illus. Bibl.ref.
||A procedure for the determination of various exposures and stress factors in the workplace is outlined. For each type of work 46 features are evaluated and ranked by an expert panel. The features used to evaluate lighting as well as the responsibilities and physical requirements of a specific type of work are presented as examples. The procedure was developed for an investigation of the causes of sickness absenteeism in three steel plants in Germany. A comparison of the results obtained with this method and subjective assessments by the workers showed agreement with regard to physical workload and work organization. Topics: description of technique; ergonomic evaluation; illumination design; mental stress; occupation disease relation; occupational diseases; physical workload; responsibilities; sickness absenteeism; steelworks; stress factors.
