||The objective of this study was to determine the level of vibration to which agricultural workers are exposed when carrying out their assigned tasks. Measurements were carried out in 13 Spanish olive and fruit farms, in which 25 workplaces using various portable tools and agricultural vehicles were examined. It was found that the permissible whole-body vibration limits were never exceeded. However, more than half the values measured exceeded the permissible hand-arm vibration limits. Implications of these findings are discussed.
