Risks of occupational expsoures to hand-transmitted vibration: VIBRISKS

Griffin, Michael J, Lewis, Christopher H., Bovenzi, Massimo, Lemerle, Pierre and Lundström, Ronnie (2004) Risks of occupational expsoures to hand-transmitted vibration: VIBRISKS In Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Hand-Arm Vibration. Center for Mechanical & Environmental Systems Technology (CMEST)., pp. 17-18.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


VIBRISKS seeks to improve understanding of the risk of injury from hand-transmitted vibration and whole-body vibration by means of epidemiological studies supported by fundamental laboratory research. VIBRISKS is a consortium of six partners from six European countries (France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, The Netherlands, UK). The four-year research project, which commenced in 2003, involves three work packages devoted to hand-transmitted vibration and three work packages devoted to whole-body vibration. This paper summarizes the hand-transmitted vibration research. Work package 1 defines methods to be used in studies of disorders caused by hand-transmitted vibration in work package 2 and integrates the results of the epidemiological studies in work package 2 with the results of experimental and modeling studies in WP3 so as to define procedures that can be applied by occupational health workers for minimizing risk, screening exposed individuals and managing individuals with symptoms. Work package 2 involves longitudinal studies in workers exposed to hand-transmitted vibration. Work package 3 involves experimental studies of the acute effects of hand-transmitted vibration on vascular and neurological function and the development of a finite element model of the biodynamic responses of the finger to vibration and force.
