The use of labels to warn workers of potential hazards (noise and vibration) in production environments has been of interest to many professionals for several years. At the present time, at least in the USA, the use (or nonuse) of labels has been strongly influenced by the legal process. This presentation will focus mainly on the use of, and potential effectiveness of, labels as a warning tool in real-world production environments. In addition, a limited discussion of warning label activities in other countries will be presented.
