Resumen An ergonomic analysis of physiological and environmental (noise) stress involved in disc-grinding sheet-metal brazings, in view of the high absenteeism and labour turnover for this work. Measurement of energy expenditure (VO2 ml/min) and heart rate (B/min) in 11 disc-grinders under real and sequential working conditions showed that the work tasks involving the greatest working stress are those in which the worker has his arms raised or in which he is leaning forward (increase in B/min and VO2 ml/min). Bicycle ergometer tests with the subject wearing shorts or work clothes showed that the type of clothing had little influence. Workers were found to be exposed to equivalent noise levels of 98.5dB(A). Engineering measures have reduced the physical workload and the noise levels.
