Working duration (p = 0,838; PR = 0,831 (95% CI = 0,390 - 1,771) With potential variables. Affecting lung function impairment of loading and unloading workers is use of mask (p = 0.195) and period of work (p = 0.143). There is no significant correlation between use of mask, smoking habit, period of work, working duration, inhaled dust exposure and lung function disorder.
