Using noise exposure histories to quantify duration of vibration exposure in tree fallers.

Abstract

A study of tree fallers in the British Columbia forest industry was done to determine if noise histories could be used to monitor the daily duration of exposure to hand-arm vibration from chain saws. Field observations and noise dosimetry showed that chain saw noise was distinguishable from other sound sources in fallers' work environments. Using data from… (More)
