Whole Body Vibration Injuries
Whole Body Vibration injuries are also known as cumulative trauma injuries or repetitive trauma injuries. These injuries refer to the constant wear and tear of the body after railroad workers are continually exposed to unsafe working environments. Over time, whole body vibration can cause serious injuries to several parts of the body, including ankles and feet, knees, hips, elbows, wrists and hands, back, neck and shoulders. Railroad engineers, as well as other railroad employees, who sit or stand for extended periods of time on locomotives have the highest risk of developing these types of whole body vibration injuries.
