||Further studies on changes in subjective stressfulness under various combinations of noise, vibration, temperature and work tasks

||Five different studies were carried out in an exposure chamber. Results indicated that subjects generally rated simultaneous noise and vibration more stressful than noise or vibration alone. Stressfulness was also generally experienced to be higher when the environmental temperature was higher than normal and when subjects were exposed to a simultaneous whole body vibration and noise. The results support earlier observations that limb blood flow and sweat rate decrease on exposure to low-frequency vibration at a temperature of 43░C. In general it appears that whole body vibration and also noise tend to confuse the operation of the cooling system of the human body during work in hot environments.
