Abstract

Introduction. The high prevalence of circulatory diseases among workers exposed to hazardous occupational factors is an important medical and social problem. Material and methods. The study of working conditions and the state of the cardiovascular system in petrochemical workers has been carried out by using hygienic, clinical, laboratory and statistical research methods. Occupational and non-occupational factors of cardiovascular risks for workers have been studied. Results. As a result of complex clinical and hygienic studies, the contribution of occupational, non-occupational, and psycho-emotional factors to the development and progression of cardiovascular diseases in chemical workers has been established. The level of cardiovascular risk has been shown to be determined by the spectrum and intensity of the impact of occupational stress factors, the age and work-experience-related characteristics of workers Conclusion. The impact of occupational, non-occupational, psychosocial risk factors on the state of the cardiovascular system has been identified. The development and implementation of the multiple factor prevention system are imperative.
