CROSH Vibration Workshop: All shook up
Presented by Dr. Katie Goggins, PhD, CCPE, CROSH Senior Scientist. Occupational exposure to whole-body vibration (WBV) is linked with increased risk of low-back pain, gastrointestinal tract problems, and fatigue. This workshop will discuss WBV exposure risks associated with operating heavy industrial equipment common in mining, forestry, and construction. Participants will also learn the basics of vibration measurement and evaluation, and they will benefit from discussion on control strategies for vibration exposure management.
