Abstract
NIOSH has sought to determine whether machine pacing, in contrast to self pacing, placed increased or unique demands on workers, and whether these demands would manifest themselves in health and/or safety consequences for the workers. Results from past NIOSH funded studies suggest that machine pacing may be related to negative health consequences. In an effort to further investigate possible consequences of machine pacing, NIOSH funded the current project. The study had three purposes: (1) to review relevant literature with respect to possible health and safety consequences of machine pacing; (2) to assess health and safety consequences of machine pacing by examining existing company records; and (3) to assess the adequacy and utility of company records as a vehicle for assessing the consequences of machine pacing.
