Abstract


Levels of Physical Environment Factors and Their Impact of Worker Health in Sanliurfa Hospitals

Background: The present research aims to investigate the noise, thermal comfort, illumination and electromagnetic field levels, the state of working environment characteristics and relationship between physical environment factors with some symptoms and stress levels of workers in hospitals in Sanlıurfa. Materials and methods: This was a cross-sectional study. Cluster sampling was used as the sampling method. Socio-demographic form, symptom questionnaire form, stress scale were used to collect the data. In addition, measurements of physical environment factors were performed for the selected cluster. Descriptive statistical parameters were used. Spearman correlation analyses were performed between stress score and symptoms and measurements. Results: Equivalent noise level measurementswere high in all units, but was the highest in the pediatric emergency department (85.5 Decibel).Predicted Main Vote was the highest in the dialysis unit with 1.10. Thermal comfort state of the dialysis unit was “slightly hot”.Illumination was inadequate in all units except the surgery room. The unit with the highest electromagnetic field level was the Computed Tomography room (6.1 Gauss). Conclusions: Working environments in hospitals should be arranged. Measurements of physical environment factors should be made and management studies should be performed if the recommended levels are exceeded.
