Understanding and measuring human body vibration

On-Demand Webinar | 20 Minuten

Attend this webinar and learn how to measure human body vibration according to ISO standards, and comply with European directive 2002/44/EC for human body vibration.

Human body vibration

Both hand-arm vibration and whole-body vibration must be measured and reduced to prevent health problems.

Sustained exposure to vibration can cause a range of health problems. Construction workers and those operating heavy equipment, power tools and large vehicles are regularly exposed to vibration.

Hand-arm vibration is caused by operating power tools such as drills and jackhammers. Excessive vibration can cause weakened grip, numbness and nerve damage. This vibration must be prevented before permanent damage occurs to workers.

Whole-body vibration occurs when vehicle vibrations are passed to the driver or passengers. This can be due to engine noise or terrain, including motion due to waves at sea. Prolonged exposure can cause spinal problems.

Ensure your equipment meets ISO 2631 and ISO 5349 vibration test standards.

ISO 2631 is a widely accepted standard for the assessment of whole body vibration. ISO 5349 covers measurement of hand-arm vibration. This webinar explains how to measure and assess vibrations in line with these standard guidelines.
