Intérêts et limites de l'évaluation de la charge de travail à l'aide des échelles de Borg

Abstract : Workioad may be estimated by rnany ways. For the purpose of this study, objective (blood pressure and heart rate) andjor subjective (Borg's CR10 scale) have been used in laboratory and in factory studies. The laboratory study quantifies cardiovascular and subjective strains developped by 30 young subjects (15 females and 15 males) during 7 different static endurance's tests of the upper limb. Objective and subjective parameters increased linearly throughout the test to their maxima. The cardiac and blood pressure maximal costs were respectively from 20 to 36 bpm and from 22 to 33 mnHg. The subjective cost was 10 for the Borg CRI0 scale. The field study was made in a pig slauterhouse. The subjective strains were recorded at 5 moments of the 8 hours workday. Activity and video recordings were done to study the task of 11 boners and 10 trimmers (7 females and 14 males). The results of this study have allowed to speciQ the cornplaints of the workers, to classifj the task strains and the effet "tiredness" throughout the workshift. The conrparison of the objective and subjective results of thé field and laboratory studies dernonstrates the interests and limits of the Borg's scales as an ergonornic workioad assessment's tool.
