Abstract : The potential hazards to personnel of the gas turbine, power generators, were assessed for noise output and portability. Results showed moderate to severe hearing damage risk for personnel working in the vicinity of the generators. The generator unit appears to be an unsafe load for four airmen to lift and carry with the hand grips as configured. Speech intelligibility tests were conducted on a portion of the communication system. Results indicated potentially serious limitations of this equipment for field use. (Author)
