If to consider self-ratings for social wellbeing, the social adaptation is relatively more successful for those who estimate health condition as good. The most workers with higher health self-ratings have higher satisfaction not only at work but also in whole life. At production plants the majority of workers, which consider their health as good, are satisfied with their life in general and refer themselves to people with average level of income. Completed analysis of 5-years trend in dynamic of social health and opinions of workers from one of the largest production plant in Omsk demonstrated following things. In both groups that are at rather well level in terms of self-assessment for health (1) "not bad", 2) "good and perfect") we noticed some improvements in self-assessment results for satisfaction in work. However, satisfaction in financial welfare and in life in general improved only for those workers that treated condition of their health at the best level (only "good and perfect"). The level of happiness which has been revealed during the research in 2019–2020 in Omsk depends on self-assessment of health condition and workers with condition of health "good and perfect" demonstrated much more higher happiness indicators.
