Resumen Measurements of vibration and, in certain instances, noise plus subjective evaluation of vibration were carried out under standardised working conditions. The time during which car body repairmen in 7 companies were exposed to vibration was determined. Chip hammers, impact wrenches, grinders and saws were the types of tools which generated the highest vibration levels. The average daily exposure was 22-70min at the different garages. The risk of vibration damage is currently rated as high. The difference between the highest and lowest levels of vibration was considerable in most tool categories, so the choice of tool has a major impact on exposure to vibration. The selection of welding methods (shielded-arc, pulsed, spot or resistance) influences noise and vibration exposure; in addition to the welding process itself, the preparation and finishing of workpieces with power tools must be taken into account.
