Top 10 tips for working with gearmotors

The dramatic growth achieved in the last few decades the automotive sector has led the research and development of prototypes of engines, with the minimum consumption of fuel trying to get the maximum performance, at the same time trying to reduce the environmental impact. In parallel, there has been a notable increase in the mechanical workshops, both in machining and manufacturing of metal parts such as repair of ac gearbox motor vehicles, in order to cope with the growing demand for products and services that are produced in this area.

The above-mentioned infrastructure and the work that is done in them give rise to the emergence of a few occupational hazards characteristic that is necessary to identify and prevent, in order to preserve the health of the people who perform activities in this field.

Workers whose exposure to noise is greater than the higher values of exposure that give rise to an action shall have the right to control their hearing function. They also have the right to control preventive audiometric, the workers whose exposure exceeds the lower values of exposure that give rise to an action, when the measurement and evaluation will show the existence of a risk to your health. When the control of the hearing function becomes apparent that a worker suffers an injury diagnosable, the doctor in charge of health surveillance will assess whether such injury can be caused by exposure to noise.
