Whole-body vibrations

Checking the compliance of the exposure of works vehicle operators and train drivers to vibrations propagated throughout the whole of their bodies.

Objectives

  • Assess vibrations transmitted through the seat or feet of employees who use mobile machines or other work vehicles
  • Measure vibration exposure experienced by employees at their individual workstations
  • Compare the degree of exposure with the statutory limits
  • Check that exposure level is below the regulatory threshold
  • Validate workstation improvements
