Abstract These recommendations are issued with the approval of and in consultation with the Health Ministry of the Russian Federation. They are intended for physicians, engineering plant safety and health officers and trade-union safety inspectors, and propose a set of organisational, technical and medical measures, aimed at preventing harmful effects of vibration, noise and physical overloads on mechanical assembly fitters, engaged in metal roughing, scraping and grinding with abrasive wheels. A brief description is given of work processes and common workplace hazards as well as occupational disease clinical picture, course, diagnosis and treatment characteristics. In appendices: recommendations for developing good work time schedules; physical excercises for workers, exposed to noise and vibration (8-10min. exercise break); self- and mutual massage of the hands, arms and shoulders.
