You may easily identify the exposure level in relation to the exposure limit value due to the colored marking.

Green field: the limit value will be achieved only after an exposure time of 8 hours or longer

Yellow field: the limit value will be achieved for an exposure time of 2-8 hours

Red field: the limit value will be achieved for an exposure time below 2 hours

Measured WBV Immission Values

KarLA offers here the results of measurements of whole-body vibration at machines in different activities under the special working conditions described in the dataset.

You can better select the machine using the option fields and select the ranking of the result by clicking on one of the triangles in the head of the columns. If you are clicking on the Details button you will see all information available about the measurement and the machine.

If you are marking machines in the first column you will see the average of the frequency weighted RMS values of the vibration acceleration for the selected machines below the table.

If you are marking a machine in the second column you will see the results of the measurements in detail below the table.

In each case, only those machine groups and categories are listed, for which datasets are available. Different acceleration values ​​can occur for a machine due to different operating conditions (see detailed view).

Measured WBV Immission Values

The acceleration aw denoted is those of the three direction values awx, awy, awz, which leads first to the achievement of the action value according to Directive 2002/44/EC (thereby the direction-dependent correction factors kx=ky=1,4 und kz=1) have to be taken into account). The reflection with regard to the limit value is carried out for the national implementation of the directive (i. e. the exposure limit value in the direction of z is reduced).
