VDI 2057 BLATT 3

Human exposure to mechanical vibration - Whole-body vibration at workplaces in buildings

active
Organization: VDI
Publication Date: 1 March 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 10
ICS Code (Vibration and shock with respect to human beings): 13.160
scope:

This standard is concerned with uniform measurement, interpretation and evaluation of the vibration exposure of employees in workplaces in buildings in which vibration transfers to the individual via the floor. In this case vibration input locations in the human body might be the feet or the buttocks. This standard also applies analogously to workplaces in the open air.

Note: This standard is not to be applied to immission control within the meaning of the Federal Ambient Pollution Control Act (BImSchG). This subject is dealt with in DIN 4150-2.

Fundamental provisions regarding the measurement of vibration in the workplace will be found in DIN EN 14253. Examples of typical vibration exciters are:

• breakers and crushers

• reciprocating saws

• printing presses

• shearing machines

• deburring machines

• forging hammers

• pig breakers

• vibrating conveyors

• foundry machinery

• stamping machines

• reciprocating machines

• turbines

• grinding mills

• looms

• presses

• material testing machines

• rotary printing machines

• machine tools

• vibrating compactors

• centrifuges
