We examined 398 workers of locomotive crews (WLC) and 116 engineers and technicians of the UR. We used the methods of vibration testing and capillaroscopy.
The results of vibration testing showed that in the first 20 years of work, a decrease of the threshold of vibration sensitivity looked like an adaptation, and later an increase of the sensitivity threshold progressed. At capillaroscopy, the violation of microcirculation determines a tendency to increased arterial pressure, it is favoured by the peculiarity of the labour conditions of the WLC under conditions of emotional and intellectual tension and combined vibration effect.
