AbstractThe article presents an assessment of ergonomic issues involved in the impact of constructional changes in the cabs of multioperational machines used on the level of workloads. It has been shown that effect of modernizing operators’ working conditions facilitates daily activities and increases comfort at work. Cabin modifications include, among other things, the use of new joysticks, handles and key panels. Thanks to modern cabins and rotating armchairs, operators’ work is safer and more ergonomic. Also important are external elements, such as ease of access to the cabin, elements that determine the stability of the machine and operator safety. The paper presents such fundamental differences in the development of the construction of multioperating forest machines in Europe. Workload factors were also examined and methods of reducing these are proposed
