Translated title of the contribution: Postures and whole-body vibrations an epidemiological pilot study

Whole-body vibrations and postural exposures have been measured simultaneously in the field at various workplaces. The exposures are characterised by the used mobile machinery, and the dependence of the exposures with regard to the workplaces has been described. In addition, further co-factors and outcome data referring to low-back pain have been assessed by means of a questionnaire at similar workplaces. The exposure data have been extrapolated from the measured workplaces at the same companies. Although a causal dose-response relation is not possible to infer from this study, a statistically significant correlation between the (extrapolated) exposure quantities and outcome data has been shown, thus validating the proposed exposure quantities.
