Abstract
Industrial vibration appears to be a potential safety and health hazard to workers in various work situations. An extensive vibration literature search has revealed, mostly from foreign studies, the affected industries, the approximate magnitude of the physical parameters involved, a view of the severity of industrial vibration as a potential safety and health hazard, and the extent of corrective emphasis being implemented on an international scale. A National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health program for establishing vibration exposure criteria is planned; it will include identification and characterization of exposed workers and industries in the United States, implementation of relevant studies to ascertain the extent of the hazard in the United States, and determination of criteria for standards to prevent harm from industrial vibration.
