The development of a self-administered questionnaire to assess exposures to hand-transmitted and whole-body vibration and their health effects

The development of a self-administered questionnaire to assess exposures to hand-transmitted and whole-body vibration and their health effects

A large British survey is being conducted to identify sources of occupational exposure to hand-transmitted and whole-body vibration, and to estimate the approximate extent of such exposures and their health effects. The principal information on exposures and morbidity will be derived from responses to a postal questionnaire specially developed by the Medical Research Council and the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, Southampton University. In this paper some of the underlying considerations are described and the iterative process of consultation, refinement and field testing employed in the questionnaire's development. The questionnaire is fully documented in an accompanying appendix.

Abstract

A large British survey is being conducted to identify sources of occupational exposure to hand-transmitted and whole-body vibration, and to estimate the approximate extent of such exposures and their health effects. The principal information on exposures and morbidity will be derived from responses to a postal questionnaire specially developed by the Medical Research Council and the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, Southampton University. In this paper some of the underlying considerations are described and the iterative process of consultation, refinement and field testing employed in the questionnaire's development. The questionnaire is fully documented in an accompanying appendix.
