  • New practical tool for assessing hazards in a diverse thermal environment (16)
    A comprehensive method for assessing hazards in a thermal environment has been developed at CIOP-PIB. It is based on European standards. Its adavantage consists in making it possible to evaluate different types of thermal environments (cold, hot, mixed), differently than required by standards, each of which covers one specific type of thermal environment only. This article presents general principles of using this method and a related web app, which is available at CIOP-PIB's website. It also discusses a way of verifying this method with the participation of workesr at cold and hot workstations.
  • Testing psychophysical capabilities with particular emphasis on influence of age (20)
    With the increasing age of workers, the workforce's psycyhophysical characteristics like strength, joint angle range, visual-motor coordination, and body balance are increasingly important for the work performance. The article characterizes parameters describing the psychophysical abilities of employees and procedudres of measuring these parameters. Due to the fact that their values change over time, they may be the basis for guidelines for designing work places for older workers.
