Whole-Body Vibration Risk

By December 10, 2020January 9th, 2021Safety
The health risks of long-term exposure to whole body vibration (WBV) are well documented, including the potential for spinal and gastrointestinal system injuries. Mobile heavy equipment that is typically used in the solid waste industry will often have vibration levels associated with long term exposure risks.

Is anyone aware of equipment manufacturers or aftermarket suppliers who are successfully reducing the effects of WBV?  Does anyone have examples of procurement documents that have included WBV in the evaluation criteria? Any information and ideas on this topic would be most appreciated. If you have any information you can share, please email [email protected].
