Título Mental effect and fatigue of JNR employees caused by inspection work of rails and bridges by helicopter
Información bibliográfica Nov. 1985, No.39, (Offprint) p.37-50. Illus. 8 ref.
Resumen To prevent railway accidents on the Japanese National Railways, employees inspect the rails and bridges by helicopter. To learn about the psychological impact of this work, 148 questionnaires were delivered and collected. In addition, 15 of these employees were checked for usual heart rates. 22% of the respondents reported no fatigue after getting out of the helicopter; 78% registered fatigue. Mental effects were reported for the evenings before the employees' scheduled flights. The mental effects were most marked in employees in their twenties. Mental effects were not due to the helicopter itself, but to the type of work involved. The reason why most of the employees in their twenties and thirties registered fatigue after work is because of the filming and changing of films that is necessary.
