Abstract

Health and Efficiency of Workmen in Relation to the Distances Traveled to and from Work A modern tendency is manifest to locate the homes of workmen in healthful sections with a rural atmosphere, far removed from the environment of factories. Prof. E. G. Dresel, a hygienist of Heidelberg, Baden, has discussed (Deutsch. med. Wchnschr. 50:959 [July 11] 1924) the effects of the distances traversed to and from work on the health, industrial capacity and social life of workmen employed in the extensive car shops located in the village of Kirchheim, near Heidelberg. His investigations concern conditions as he found them in 1920-1922 in five residential areas: (1) Kirchheim and the adjoining village of Rohrbach; (2) the neighboring city of Heidelberg, with suburbs; (3) railway stations from 4 to 12 kilometers (from 2½ to 7 miles) distant; (4) railway stations from 12 to 46 kilometers distant, and (5) villages more
