Abstract

There seems to be a dose-response relationship between the cumulative lifetime vibration dose of the HAV and finger blanching, sensorineural symptoms, symptoms of CTS and musculoskeletal symptoms of upper limbs and neck in the group of metalworkers of the study. The risk for neurosensory symptoms was the most significantly related to exposure to HAV and also to impulse vibration. Further studies are needed to confirm the present results also in other occupational groups taking into account the possible synergistic effect of workload as well.
