ABSTRACT
It is known that long-term repetitive movements in an unsuitable work environment have unfavourable effects on the human body. Designing a work environment in a complex man-machine-environment system is therefore an important task. The article is focused on the creation of optimal conditions for the performance and safety of a worker with the goal of ensuring preservation of his health, i.e. his physical, mental and social satisfaction. The main part is resolved through application of a model for designing a work environment for the lathing of a two-wheel assembly, with an emphasis on primary principles when designing systems with the goal of minimizing the burden put on workers and thus increasing safety and quality – of ergonomic conditions and noise. In the article a method for assessing noise is proposed while keeping not only legislative requirements in mind but also the non-auditory effects of noise (consequences on the cardiovascular system) caused by the fact that the hearing organs are not the only areas affected by noise.

Keywords: noise, human factor, ergonomics, safety, maintenance, lathe work
