This European Standard specifies the evaluation of vibration emission at operator's place during testing and operation of mobile machinery. It is intended to be used for defining magnitudes of whole-body vibration transmitted from supporting surfaces to the human body in the frequency range 1 Hz to 80 Hz. According to this standard, the magnitudes are stated as r.m.s. values of representative vibration. This European Standard provides requirements for the vibration test codes to be incorporated in the machinery related standards, including the conditions under which the measurements shall be made (e.g. operating conditions). This European Standard applies to sitting and standing positions. It is applicable to all mobile machinery producing periodic or random vibration with or without transients. Only rectilinear vibrations are dealt with in this standard. The purpose of this European Standard is to ensure consistency and compatibility of test and evaluation methods. It does not present limits or recommended vibration values.
