An evaluation of the tractor driver's workplace from the view-point of ergonomics with special respect to vibration



An evaluation of the tractor driver's workplace from the view-point of ergonomics with special respect to vibration



Acta Universitatis Agriculturae, Facultas agroeconomica, D 15(1-2): 11-20



Vibration generated by the motion of the vehicle and transmitted to the operator affects the ease of driving and health of the driver; the driver is liable to greater fatigue, leading to reduced reacting ability and to lower safety. The effect of various forms of vibration on the human organism was analyzed from the viewpoint of health and performance. The methods of testing driver's seats were also examined.
