Podcast on Vibration Hazards

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has produced a
special podcast on vibration hazards.

While the human body is built to be mobile, it was not meant to vibrate. In
small doses, vibration is harmless. Unfortunately, mechanization has introduced
significant vibration hazards to the workplace. Although injuries and illness
from vibration are preventable, the effects of regular and frequent exposure to
vibration can be disabling and permanent. This podcast discusses causes and
symptoms of hand-arm and whole body vibrations, and what employers and
employees can do to address the risks.

The podcast runs 6:14 minutes.
