In this study, physiological workloads were determined based upon heart beatings values measured for harvesting workers and body composition and isometrical force values of the workers were measured. The study was conducted on 31 harvesting workers who all are males at 7 study areas which belongs to the Artvin Forest Enterprise. In conclusion, Physiological Workloads (%HRR) of the harvesting workers were determined and it was specified that these workers were working in "Medium-level work" according to average heart beating values (HRw) measured during the work. Furthermore, knee strength value of these workers was determined averagely as 82.8 kg, back strength value of these workers was determined averagely as 70.5 kg, and body fat of these people was determined as %16,33. When average age of the workers is taken in consideration, we conclude that body fat percentage values of the workers is within “medium” group, and when Body Mass Index values are taken in consideration we conclude that workers are in the “fat” group.
