Comparative analysis of exposure limit values of vibrating hand-held tools
In the European Union, one of every four workers claims to be exposed to vibration for up to 2 h of his/her working day. The use of vibrating hand-held tools is the most common cause of vibration-related injury in workers. Of all sectors of professional activity, the construction industry has the highest number of workers affected by vibration. European Directive 2002/44/EC on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding worker exposure to risks from physical agents (e.g. vibration) limits exposure to vibration. This study analysed the exposure level of construction workers to hand-arm...
Quantitative neurosensory findings, symptoms and signs in young vibration exposed workers
Background: Long-term exposure to hand-held vibrating tools may cause the hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) including vibration induced white fingers and sensorineural symptoms. The aim was to study early neurosensory effects by quantitative vibrotactile and monofilament tests in young workers with hand-held vibration exposure. Methods: This cross-sectional study consisted of 142 young, male machine shop and construction workers with hand-held exposure to vibrating tools. They were compared with 41 non-vibration exposed subjects of the same age-group. All participants passed a structured interview...
