The complex physiological-hygienic evaluation of the working conditions of agricultural machine operators in the dynamics of the annual production cycle of growing crops is carried out. It is set that the machine operators performing basic types of work are subject to the combined effect of harmful factors of environment and labour process, the levels of which correspond by the degree of deviation from the hygienic standards to harmful labor conditions of 1–4 degrees (classes 3.1–3.4). Levels of blood pressure, hemodynamic and functional status (IFS) show tension of regulator systems and reducing of the body's adaptive capabilities of the machine operators that can be caused by exposure to adverse working conditions.
