Proceedings of a 5 day international conference sponsored by NIOSH, held in Cincinnati, Ohio, during October 1975, in order to explore and identify directions and methodology needed to conduct meaningful research on the relationship between occupational hand-arm vibration and worker health and safety. The meeting was attended by representatives from government, industry, labor, tool manufacturers and universities. Presentations encompassed the medical, physiological, epidemiological, engineering, and monitoring aspects of the hand-arm vibration problems. Several presentations by members of the FAO/ECE/ILO chain saw group clarified the general hand-arm vibration problem, relating it, but not limiting it, to workers using chain saws.
