Rock-drill handle vibration: measurement and hazard assessment
AbstractThe authors characterize the handle vibration of a pneumatically-powered jack-leg rock drill commonly used in Canadian mines, and record its vibration at frequencies above 1400 Hz. The potential health hazard posed by different vibration frequencies may then be explored, by reference to data from medical studies and other types of power tools
