A study of chain saw vibration: assessment of the exposure of chain saw operators to hand transmitted vibration



A study of chain saw vibration: assessment of the exposure of chain saw operators to hand transmitted vibration



Proceedings, United Kingdom informal group meeting on human response to vibration, AFRC Institute of Engineering Research, Silsoe, UK, 21-22 September 1989: 11



As part of a joint UK Forestry Commission-Health and Safety Executive project investigating the vibration of chain saws, an assessment is being made of the level of exposure to vibration of chain saw operators for 2 types of chain saw work in the UK Forestry Commission: shortwood working and felling for subsequent mechanical processing. These operations involve high levels of regular exposure to chain saw vibration.
