Abstract


This paper shows the stages in  the evaluation of vibration exposure and they involve the following steps: identification of a series of discrete operations which make up the subject’s normal working pattern, selection of operations to be measured, organization and duration of the measurement, estimation of daily vibration exposure time, measurement equipment, location and attachment of the accelerometers, measurement of vibration magnitude, sources of uncertainty in vibration measurement, calculation of  daily vibration exposure. In addition, one example of the calculation of daily vibration exposure of workers employed in the “DalCin” d.o.o. Company has been presented here.

Keywords
