Abstract
Investigation to determine by X-ray the incidence of bone or joint injury among compressed air workers reveals that Washington State Safety Standards for Compressed Air Work appear to have prevented disability due to osteoarthritis up to 34 pounds per square inch gauge. The decompression procedures may have produced minimal bone shaft changes in approximately 6% of these tunnel workers.
