A review of modem literature concerning different aspects of the promotion of the reliability of an operator’s work, includ¬ing the effect of work environment factors, functional state, tension of work, has been made. Selected physiological mecha-nisms have been considered, allowing the body to adequately response in the process of work, A classification of factors, con¬tributing to the quality of work performance, has been proposed.

Key words: operator’s activity, reliability, functional state, psychophysiological indices
