Welcome to the website of Occupational and Environmental Life Sciences. We are dedicated to the occupational and environmental working conditions in the American railroad industry. In order to improve these conditions, we engage in research currently focusing on the ergonomic conditions in rail bound vehicles, with emphasis on the exposure to whole-body vibration and the consequences of such exposures for the musculoskeletal system.

 

On our website, you can find abstracts of our peer reviewed publications on the issues of whole-body vibration assessment in locomotives and other rail bound vehicles, and health consequences of such exposures.

 

Our clinic is located in Albany, New York, and specialized in the clinical evaluation of occupational related diseases.
