Anna Miernik


The aim of the research was an ergonomic evaluation of the working environment in the potato storage room. The scope of work included the measurement of the basic parameters of the physical environment in indivdual rooms of the potato storage room. On the basis of measurements, the degree of thermal comfort of employees with PMV and PPD indicators was determined. There were no significant irregularities in the studied work environment, this observation applies to all measured values. It should be noted that people working in the storage room performed maintenance operations, where the energy expenditure rarely exceeded 1 meter. Based on the value of the PPD indicator, it can be stated that thermal discomfort will be felt by only 5% of the crew, which in the light of the applicable guidelines is permissible value.
