Abstract
This paper explores the effects of low frequency vibrations (below 1 hz) from heavy machinery in coal mines. Recordings of low-frequency vertical vibrations collected during earlier studies were used to determine whether exposure to these vibrations caused "motion sickness" in mining machine operators, and the probability of overexposure to these vibrations using a variety of equipment such as bulldozers, front-end loaders, and scrapers is presented.
