Assessment of prospects for research on space-time limits in the extreme professional activity (in Russian)

2022. Vol. 12. No. 1. P. 70–91 [issue contents]

The article provides a directed review of publications on the psychology of extreme labor. Purpose. The purpose of the analytical review is to assess the perspective and heuristic nature of the study of space-time limitations i.e. the subjective perception by specialists of space-time factors as negative components of working conditions. The relevance of referring to the concept that characterizes the subjectivity of the perception of working conditions is justified by the fact that in most cases, the studies do not differentiate objectively and subjectively determined features of the perception of working conditions. In addition, the relationship between working conditions and a person’s reaction to them is studied through a combination of factors both in the role of a dependent and an independent variable, without differentiating them, or the differentiation becomes so narrow that it loses its realism. The review characterizes well-known trends in psychology, within which the space-time parameters of working conditions, a set of characteristics of harmful and hazardous factors related to space and time, which determine the extremeness of working conditions in Russian legislation, is considered, studies in which spatial and the time components of working conditions are studied as dependent and independent variables, the relevance of a differentiated study of subjective factors of their perception and influence on the general attitude of specialists to working conditions is assessed. Findings. Based on the review, it is concluded that in the modern world, the study of the processes of subjective assessment by specialists of the extreme profile of the spatio-temporal aspects of working conditions is a very urgent task that requires the identification of reliable signs, causes and manifestations of these limitations, which can be used as criteria for going beyond the limits of individually significant boundaries of the norm. Prospects for research in the direction of the indicated direction are assessed as heuristic and bringing the result closer to reliability in a real situation.
