Environmental ergonomics deals with the effect of environmental factors on human health, comfort and performance. This day-to-day interaction between humans and environment affects performance and productivity of employees in various industries. Indoor temperature is one of the fundamental characteristics of the indoor environment. The work environment has an effect on the performance of workers. The thermal work environment in various sectors will determine the way in which such enterprises prosper.The main problem in this study is the effects of the high temperature of the turbine room on the workers performance at Al-Dora power station in Iraq, because there are many of power stations in Iraq are suffering from reduced in the performance of workers in the turbine rooms due to the high temperature emitted from the turbine and equipment located inside the turbine room.The objective of the study to investigate the temperature effects in the turbine room and equipment on the workers performance and then analyze model framework which will evaluate workers who are suffering from the bad environment in AL-Dora power station .Primary data have been generated through structured questionnaires with close-ended questions by the survey in Iraqi Ministry of Electricity (AL- Dora power station). Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) has been used to test the research hypotheses.The sample for this study include the (workers, operators, technicians, and engineers) who work in the turbine rooms at AL-Dora power station are 226 respondents, representing 100% of the target population.This study has been used two types of tools SPSS software the first type was a parametric test like the correlations, mean, standard deviation, regression analysis, histograms, P–P plot and moderation tool. While the second type of test was non-parametric tests like Mann-Whitney U test and Kruskal-Wallis H test.This research is the first study of its kind in the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity to investigate the factors and temperature that affecting on workers performance in turbine room in Iraq, and considered very important and has economic feasibility.Therefore, this study will help the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity to improve performance in turbine room. Results revealed that the temperature inside the turbine room as a moderation has the direct effect of the variables (performance pressure, bad environment, work area, turnover intention) that had direct and significant effects on worker performance which points out to the importance of using methods to reducing the temperature in turbine room and thus increase the performance of workers.
