Title Personal noise exposure of operators of agricultural tractors
Bibliographic information Mar. 2010, Vol.41, No.2, p.274-281. Illus. 28 ref.
Abstract There are approximately one million agricultural tractors in Turkey. The objectives of this study were to determine noise exposures of tractor drivers under various work tasks and conditions. Variance analyses highlighted the type of operation, type of cabins, and operation-cabin interactions that were statistically significant for noise levels. It is recommended that hearing protection devices should be used when tractors are operated without cabins.
