Título Physical strain on Vietnamese forest workers
Información bibliográfica Arbetarskyddsstyrelsen, Publikationsservice, 171 84 Solna, Sweden, 1985. 13p. Illus. 7 ref. Price: Swe.cr.25.00.
Resumen The physical work capacity and the physical workload during forest work was studied in 10 Vietnamese who worked with the supply of wood to the pulp and paper mill in Bai Bang, a Swedish aid project. The workers' physical work capacity was relatively high. The forest work was very demanding due to physically heavy work, heat stress and loss of body fluid through sweating. The total workload could be reduced without decreased productivity by using more frequent but shorter resting periods and increased water intake. Supplying rubber boots and raincoats could also make it possible to increase the productivity by making it possible to do some work even on rainy days, constituting quite a number of days per year.
