Abstract

30 male workers exposed to whole body vibration were included in ou study. Risk assessment was performed using an integrator accelerometer and ISPESL data bank. Helath surveillance sae performed using questionnaire obtained from vibration injiury network for wposure to WBV, integrated by clinical examination and specific examination of rachis with EPM model. Measures perfomed showed that for all elevator machinery drivers,except one subject,acceleration A(8) daily exposure WBV value was lower than the action level established by italian law (Legislative decree 81/08). A statistical significant difference was detected between data obtained by measures and data bank available. 47% of acceleration values of measure were higher than the corresponding available data bank; 45% were lower and only 8% were correspondent. We abtained a positive correlation between WBV esposure and risk to develop rachis symtoms or pathologies. On the basis of above results, we tried to drmonstrade an higher positive correlation considering symultaneusly te tho parameter (length of service risk to develop rachis symtoms or pathologies).
