  • Assessment of exposure of gas station attendants in Sri Lanka to benzene, toluene and xylenes. [Journal Article]
    Environ Res 2019; 178:108670Scheepers PTJ, de Werdt L, … Devanarayana NM
  • Exposure to benzene, toluene and p-, m-, o-xylene (BTX) was studied in 29 gas station attendants and 16 office workers in Sri Lanka. The aim of this study was to assess the exposure level and identify potential exposure mitigating measures. Pre- and post-shift samples of end-exhaled air were collected and analysed for BTX on a thermal desorption gas chromatography mass spectrometry system (TD-GC-…
  • Ergonomics assessment methods used by ergonomics professionals. [Journal Article]
    Appl Ergon 2019; 81:102882Lowe BD, Dempsey PG, Jones EM
  • A web-based survey was conducted of ergonomics practitioners holding certifications in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. The survey follows 12 years after an earlier initial survey reported by Dempsey et al. (2005). Approximately 1221 eligible participants were invited by e-mail to participate, and 405 surveys were included in the final analysis. The survey queried use …
  • An investigation of the acute central nervous system effects of n-decane. [Journal Article]
    Regul Toxicol Pharmacol 2019; 107:104421McKee RH, Nessel CS, Carrillo JC
  • Acute central nervous system (CNS) depression is the most sensitive toxicological effect associated with aliphatic hydrocarbon exposure. No observed effect levels for the CNS effects of aliphatic constituents decrease with increasing carbon number to C10 (Lammers et al., 2011; McKee et al., 2011), whereas constituents with carbon numbers > C10 do not produce CNS effects at maximally attainable va…
  • Sound Level Measurements in Berthing Areas of an Aircraft Carrier. [Journal Article]
    Ann Work Expo Health 2019; 63(8):918-929Schaal NC, Majar M, Hunter A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results suggest that sleeping area location in close proximity to relatively high noise sources and activities occurring on an aircraft carrier (i.e. flight operations) increase noise levels in sleeping areas. These findings raise serious concerns since high noise exposures both on duty and during off-duty/sleeping periods may inhibit auditory recovery from hazardous noise exposures. In addition, results suggest noise levels in sleeping areas are high enough to evoke negative sleep effects.
  • Risk assessment of upper limbs repetitive movements in a fish industry. [Journal Article]
    BMC Res Notes 2019; 12(1):354Intranuovo G, De Maria L, … Vimercati L
  • Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs) have a multifactorial origin: work-related risk factors and individual factors (age, sex, anthropometric characteristics). The purpose of the current study was the risk assessment of upper limb-WMSDs of workers engaged in tasks of anchovies filleting and packaging in a fish industry considering the ergonomic evaluation and the painful symptomatology …
  • The accuracy of a 2D video-based lifting monitor. [Journal Article]
    Ergonomics 2019; 62(8):1043-1054Wang X, Hu YH, … Radwin RG
  • A widely used risk prediction tool, the revised NIOSH lifting equation (RNLE), provides the recommended weight limit (RWL), but is limited by analyst subjectivity, experience, and resources. This paper describes a robust, non-intrusive, straightforward approach to automatically extract spatial and temporal factors necessary for the RNLE using a single video camera in the sagittal plane. The parti…
