CRITERIA OF OCCUPATIONAL FITNESS FOR WORKERS OF COAL PRODUCTION EXTREME PROFESSIONS
In recent years issues of personal suitability for specific workplace (or career suitability) using complex methodological approaches were widely discussed in various fields of economy. This included studies of individual properties of neural system, personality, mental processes, cortico-subcortical relationships, autonomic responses, which characterize the degree of stress imposed upon a human's body. Specific working conditions in coal mines, characterized by a complex of unfavorable factors, place increased demands on psychofunctional conditions of miners’ bodies. Certain general properties of body should be studied and be critically important for selection of extreme profession. Intensification of industrial production, growth requirements for quantity and quality of work and level of training brings stricter requirements of professional competences. Competences are especially important for those occupations in which the discrepancy between physiological capacity of a body is associated with potential health damage and life threatening risks. We have developed criteria for suitability applicable to the preparation of young professionals to work in extreme conditions of the coal production. Use of a complex psychophysiological indicators of professional competence of body work, will increase efficiency, reliability and enable trouble-free carrier. The most informative psychophysiological parameters are Breathing capacity, Capacity of forced breathing, Maximal volume speed, Maximal ventilation of lungs, Systolic arterial pressure, Diastolic arterial pressure, Frequency of systole, Reactive uneasiness and Individual uneasiness.
