Abstract

Abstract. Occupational risks affect the health of miners and up to 40% of labor losses are caused by diseases directly or indirectly connected with unfavorable working conditions. The research aimed to determine the degree of connection of the disease incidence by temporary loss of working capacity of coal mine workers with working conditions, which was estimated for all classes of diseases and the relative risk (OR) value was 1.69 units, etiological share (EF) - 41% and was estimated as average. These incidence rates for the disease classes were almost complete: Class XIII (OR=5.08 units; EF=80%) and Class XIX (OR=5.03 units; EF=80%), and high for the disease classes: Class XI (OR=2.57 units; EF=61%) and Class X (OR=2.46 units; EF=59%). This relationship by day was almost complete among: Class X (OR=6.18 units; EF=100%), Class XI (OR=7.27 units; EF=100%), Class XIII (OR=7.79 units; EF=100%), and Class XIX (OR=17.87 units; EF=100%). Among workers engaged in underground coal mining, the value of –ěR=1.4 units, EF=29.3%, was occasionally observed and assessed as small. Relationship of the disease to underground working conditions was assessed as very high by disease classes: Class X (OR=3.6 units; EF=72.1%), Class XI (OR=3.8 units; EF=73.5%) and Class XIII (OR=4.8 units; EF=79.1%). The disease relationship by day was almost complete: in Grade XI (OR=5.3 units; EF=100%) and Grade XIII (OR=8.9 units; EF=100%), and high in Grade X disease (OR=3.0 units; EF=100%). The risk of eating disorders of workers was identified by class XI disease and was assessed as very high in cases (OR=3.8 units; EF=73.8%). A high degree of occupational conditionality was determined for Class XIII disease (OR=2.2 units; EF=55.3%).
