Resumen About 100 places of work, including ships, aircraft, trains and printing houses were investigated as regards human exposure to whole-body vibration while standing. Vibration at frequencies of 0.2-100Hz was measured in 3 perpendicular directions under normal operating conditions. Third-octave bands and broad-banded frequency weighted acceleration levels were determined. Low vibration levels, in most cases below 100dBv, were generally found for all environments; in some cases levels were below the perception threshold for vibration. The highest vibration levels were found in the vertical direction but on ice-breakers dominant vibrations in the front-to-back direction could also be demonstrated. No limitations in working-hours should in general be recommended according to the guidelines given in relevant Swedish or ISO standards.
