Monitoring of Operators’ Professional Aging

Very often, the individual faces loss of function due to aging problems and tries to change this situation. His or her occupation activity suffers from human professional aging. At the same time, research in the field of professional aging makes it possible to investigate the human functional state and fitness for work. For the widespread diagnosis, “practically healthy,” they usually have in mind three groups of people who are in a state of adaptive stress and have a high risk of illness or features of transition states. The dynamic diagnostics of these states can contribute considerably in forming the prediction risk assessment of their transition into a pathological state. Development of methods of quantitative risk assessment for the main pathologic processes accompanying an operator’s professional work allows the creation of an applied tool for the prognostication of professional aging.
