    An overview of occupational vibration studies in the United States is presented. The studies indicated significant levels of whole-body and hand-arm vibration exposures. The modeling and measuring approach of standing humans subjected to vibratory inputs is presented, followed by a discussion of vibration exposure to seated subjects such as tractor and earth-moving machinery operators. Protective measures and design recommendations are presented.
