Working Group on Human Exposure to Mechanical Vibration and Shock
Chair: Donald Peterson
Co-Chair: Ren Dong
Scope: Standardization in the field of shock, vibration and related biodynamic environments with regard to health, safety, performance and comfort criteria and guidelines regarding the effects of occupational and non-occupational exposures on the human population (environments of primary interest are: vibration, rotational oscillations, shock and impact transmitted to the whole-body or parts thereof). Preparation of standard terminology and characterization of the biodynamic properties of humans with and without support and restraint devices by means of biodynamic models or analogues is also included as a basis for the description of the physical, behavioral and physiological effects of the mechanical environments under consideration.
