This contribution follows up the first part, where the results of measurement executed in the wood store in eastern Slovakia concerning the occupation machinist of a front loader and that of sawyer were presented. Based on the results a mathematical-statistical analysis revealed the risks of these working positions. This is an introductory study, but with the ambition of creating a methodological basis for possible further risk assessment in the working environment.
