ABSTRACT:
Currently, emphasis is still placed on the risk evaluations of physical factors in workplaces. The aim of this paper was to evaluate objectively and subjectively the noise parameters and microclimate conditions near the conveyor systems at the workplace for the handling and sorting of postal items. Objective noise measurements were performed using the Norsonic 140 sound analyser, Class 1 and microclimatic conditions using the Testo 435 instrument. The subjective evaluation was performed by the questionnaire method (120; F: 66; M: 54). The result of the research was the assessment of health risks, depending on the sources of noise caused by conveyor systems.
