SOME ASPECTS OF NOISE AND VIBRATION ON BOARD TANKERS

A survey is presented about the measured results of noise and vibration levels on tankers and their effects on personnel. The trend in the design of tankers has resulted in vastly increased sizes, with all-aft accommodation, higher engine powers, and the use of much higher speed engines and machinery. These factors, together with the crews' extended exposure to "full-power" noise and vibration levels, due to the pattern of rapid loading and unloading at termini, have caused considerable growth in the number of complaints from tanker personnel.
