||Many studies have shown that the widespread use of various sources of vibration in the industrial, agricultural and forestry fields, such as vehicles, machinery and tools, constitutes a source of vibration disorders or the worsening of pre-existing symptoms. The objective of this study was to present a comparison between the two types of risk assessment methods currently admissible under Italian legislation, namely direct field measurements and the use of published data. The advantages and operational limitations involved in the use of databases were evaluated through the results of direct field measurements assessing the risk from vibrations in the plant of a mineral water and beverages company. Findings are discussed with reference to Italian legislation.
