Abstract
The history and present assessment of occupational hand-arm vibration research in the United States is briefly reviewed. Studies began as early as 1915, with the only significant efforts being seen in 1946, the early 1960's, and 1974. It is estimated that 8 million workers are exposed to occupational vibration in U.S. industries. It is considered inconceivable to conclude that Raynaud's phenomenon of occupational origin is extinct in the United States. It is contended that research in the U.S. has fallen far behind that of other nations in this area of concern.
