The Influence of Driver's Working Environment οn Thermical Changes of Their Organism

Title variants
Languages of publication
The work presents the research on the influence of driver's working environment on thermical changes in their organism. The experiment was conducted between 24 and 31 March 2008 in the tram depot of Public Transport Agency in Tychy. Thermo-visual photos were conducted twice a day - before starting work and after finishing it during six following days. The group consisted of 14 drivers aged 24-49 driving city buses (the make: Solaris Urbino 18). The results were analyzed concerning statistics using Statistica. For the sake of the analysis the significance level was p = 0.05, the non-parametric Wilcoxon test or parametric T-test were used for two groups of dependent variables. The research and analysis show that driver's working environment has valid influence on thermical changes in their organism.
