NOISE AND VIBRATION AS VIEWED BY A MARITIME UNION
The paper calls attention to the problems the seafarer is facing on today's high productivity ships, in particular noise and vibration. Some practical cases presented at a recent training session for union members are reviewed, and the procedures adopted by the union for dealing with such problems are outlined. The impact of industrial noise on the union members is discussed. Excerpts from the noise reduction program and from noise level standards for new construction for towboat operators are presented.
