The results are followings; 1. There were significant differences among subjects in the normal complaints rate for cough by presence smoking, total career, and work days per week. 2. There was significant difference among subjects in the normal complaints rate for sputum only by work days per week.(P<0.05) 3. There were significant differences among subjects in the normal complaints rate for continuance of sputum or congestion by work days per week and required measures for improvement in pain. 4. There were significant differences among subjects in the normal complaints rates for blocked nose and coryza by sex, age, work days per week and average length of breaking time during working (P<0.05). 5. There were significant differences among subjects in the normal complaints rates for shortness of breath by sex, exercise frequency, average length of exercise, main job. 6.
