Whole Body Vibration
Whole body vibration is caused by vibration transmitted through the seat or the feet by workplace machines and vehicles. Exposure to high levels of whole-body vibration can present risks to health and safety and are reported to cause or aggravate back injuries. The risks are greatest when the vibration magnitudes are high, the exposure durations long, frequent, and regular, and the vibration includes severe shocks or jolts.
