Earth moving machines expose their operators to whole-body vibration. When discussing impact of WBV on health, ISO 2631-1:1997 states: “If it has been established that the frequency range below 1 Hz is not relevant nor important, a frequency range from 1 Hz to 80 Hz can be substituted”; but does not provide criteria through which to classify components below 1 Hz significant or not. This paper presents a quantitative assessment of WBV components below 1 Hz in WBV data acquired from a sample of… CONTINUE READING
