Título Study and solution of the problem of noise in rotary offset printing
Título original Etude et recherche d'une solution au problème du bruit aux rotatives offset d'une imprimerie [en francés]
Información bibliográfica 1983, Vol.22, No.1, p.67-70. Illus.
Resumen Review of the problems encountered in a printing shop which bought rotary offset equipment during the 1970s without recognising the noisiness of the equipment. After testing of various alternatives, installation of a specially designed enclosure (curtains of plastic sheeting) and improvements in materials handling resulted in a reduction of 18-23dBA in the ambient noise level. With the additional protection provided by individual protective equipment, no deterioriation in the audiograms of employees has been observed. The roles of occupational physicians and company management in arriving at the solution are emphasised; ergonomic considerations were important in the subsequent purchase of another offset press for the shop.
