Characterization of the health hazard associated with exposure to repeated mechanical shock

D. Robinson, J. Morrison

Abstract


An approach for characterizing the health hazard associated with exposure to repeated mechanical shocks is presented. An advantage of this approach is that it can be used to assess the health hazard of a single exposure to repeated shocks, intermittent exposures over a prolonged period, or a lifetime of daily exposure. The approach is being considered by ANSI and ISO working groups as a draft standard for exposure to repeated shocks.
