Human Vibration

Human vibration in the workplace can be created by the operation of tools, plant machinery, and various vehicles. Different parts of the human body have resonances and, as you would expect, vibration at a resonant frequency is especially disturbing. As the transmissibility of vibration to an operator increases in amplitude or duration, it can cause annoyance, fatigue, and at higher exposures, a risk of injury.

Human vibration in the workplace is categorized in two ways:

  1. Whole-body vibration (WBV) where transmission is from the source through the feet or the buttock and into the body.
  2. Hand-arm vibration (HAV) where transmission is through the hands and arms when using vibrating tools.

The Larson Davis Human Vibration Meter (HVM100) is well suited for measuring whole-body and hand-arm vibration. It will analyse the data in accordance with the most current ISO requirements to calculate exposure metrics. The HVM100 is used with a miniature accelerometer that can be mounted using various handle adapters or a seatpad accelerometer. Using the Larson Davis Blaze® software, the operator can gather, manage, graph, and report the vibration exposure data.
