||Workplace levels of infrasound to which workers were exposed were determined with commercial sound measuring and analysis equipment. Infrasound was taken to be the difference between dB readings on the linear and A scales of the meters. Factory workers were found to be exposed to 78-90dB of total sound (linear scale), drivers of various vehicles to 97-110dB, railway workers to 78-97dB, river transport workers to 75-99dB, and harbour workers to 79-91dB. The various trades represented differ in the spectra of sound and infrasound to which they are subjected. Operators of automobiles and watercraft had the highest exposures to infrasound: the differences between the scale readings were 33 and 40dB, respectively.
