Fatigue in women conducting work with predominantly dynamic effort. I. Work demands and type of signs of fatigue



Fatigue in women conducting work with predominantly dynamic effort. I. Work demands and type of signs of fatigue



Medycyna Pracy 37(4): 250-259



In evaluation of fatigue by the working day and evaluation of chronic fatigue subjective methods have been applied. The fatigue due to the working day was tested twice during a work shift--in the 2nd and 8th working hour. Two professional groups of women were covered by the investigation: knitters (94) and sorters (44). It was a sufficient sample. The fatigue was found to be relatively low--it did not surpass the value of 2 points. Only some symptoms occurred with greater intensity, e.g. tiredness of legs and whole body. This results from the type of work performed by the women. The correlation between the type of fatigue symptoms and type of work is also confirmed by differences in evaluation of knitters and sorters. The evaluation of fatigue in both professional groups did not differ from the results of studies of the fatigue after the working day. Only somatic disturbances were evaluated higher; the differences between sorters and knitters in this group of symptoms possibly being affected by the differences in the workers' age. The obtained results indicate that despite the differences in the type of work, the type and magnitude of fatigue were similar at both workplaces.
