Association Between Farm Machinery Operation and Low Back Disorder in Farmers
A Retrospective Cohort Study Objective: The association between whole body vibration (WBV) as measured by annual accumulated use of all-terrain vehicles (ATV)/combine/tractor operation and low back disorders (LBDs) among farmers was investigated. Methods: Saskatchewan Farm Injury Cohort Study data was used. Baseline data were collected in 2007 on the three vehicle types and other factors. Follow-up data on LBD symptoms were collected during 2013 resulting in 1149 samples. Results: Adjusted for age, education, and gender, LBDs were associated with tractor operation for 1 to 150 hours/year (Relative...
Principaux risques physiques à l'origine de troubles lombalgiques chez les opérateurs d'engins mobiles : revue de littérature
Les enquêtes épidémiologiques démontrent un risque accru de lombalgie chez les opérateurs d'engins mobiles travaillant en position assise. Pour prévenir ce risque, l'INRS et ses homologues internationaux cherchent à développer une méthode d'évaluation du risque vibratoire intégrant l'ensemble des contraintes physiques auxquelles des opérateurs d'engins vibrants peuvent être exposés. Les efforts portent sur l'apport de connaissances nouvelles concernant la quantification ainsi...
Driving an unloaded bucket resulted in significantly higher levels of vibration exposure than with a loaded bucket.
Although it is not possible to conclude that high levels of WBV exposure were the only cause of the reported neck and back discomfort, vibration levels experienced by the underground mining load-haul-dump ( LHD) operators indicated health risks were likely to develop, with a higher probability of injury to the back. Analysis of all operators’ injury profiles and their vibration profiles will be important in future studies in order to determine whether these variables are related. The mining industry will need to consider a number of different intervention strategies to have an impact on injury...
Surveys suggest that transport workers are more exposed to vibrations than the average working population.
European workers in transport over land and through pipelines seem also to be more exposed to vibrations from tools and machinery than the average working population. Several studies demonstrate the detrimental consequences of sustained sitting and being exposed to whole body vibration: exposure to vibrations may lead to back disorders. Based on the information available on heavy machines, the significance of the seat is important when steps to reduce full-body vibrations are taken. Full body vibration, for example caused by the driver’s cabin, may also affect the vision, coordination and...
Une étude de l’INRS passe les transpalettes au crible
Le niveau vibratoire élevé auquel les conducteurs de transpalettes électriques sont soumis impose la mise en place d’actions de prévention. Tel est le constat de l’INRS à la suite d’une étude de comportement de 6 TEP (transpalettes électriques à conducteur porté). L es conducteurs de charriots sont plus souvent que les autres salariés soumis à des risques de lombalgies et autres mots de dos, de sciatiques, de radiculalgies crurales, de microtraumatismes de la colonne vertébrale… L’étude...
Whole-Body Vibration - Building Awareness in Safety, Health & Environment
Issues in the U.S. include inadequate professional awareness and knowledge of WBV, limited exposure assessment data and lack of mandatory standards. Whether transmitted during standing or sitting, whole-body vibration (WBV) is a hazardous exposure that is common in many occupational settings. It can lead to low-back pain and lost time in occupational environments. Yet, as often as it may occur, a recent survey revealed that issues surrounding WBV are not known to many SH&E professionals. However, implementing practices such as seat redesign and exposure assessments can address this knowledge...
Whole-body vibration in agriculture
