Fatigue in a nuclear research centre
La fatigue dans un centre d'études nucléaires [in French]
In the "hot" laboratories of nuclear research laboratories, the staff is subject to non-radioactive stress resulting from the work environment (heat, artificial lighting and ventilation, negative atmospheric pressure, noise, vibration) or from the conditions and the type of work (work with glove boxes or in pressurised suits, use of manipulators). The subjective and non-specific symptoms of fatigue due to worl in "hot" laboratories are, in decreasing order of importance: asthenia; sleepiness; headache; vertigo; nervousness; memory, vigilance and sleep disorders. At the French Atomic Energic Authority, these symptoms were approached in 3 ways: by a comparative study of exposed and unexposed workers; subjective analysis of fatigue in informal interviews with a sample of the personnel; the objective measurement of environmental factors and stress at the workpost. It was found that humidity was too low, noise levels were too high (negative-pressure ventilation, pumps, etc.), and that work in glove boxes raised ergonomic problems.
