Working Group on Human Exposure to Mechanical Vibration and Shock

Chair: Donald Peterson

Vice-Chair: R. Dong

Scope: Develop and maintain standards for shock and vibration and biodynamic environments with regard to criteria for health, safety, performance and comfort, 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) including: terminology; characterization of biodynamic properties of humans with and without support and restraints; biodynamic models or analogues; descriptions of physical, behavioral and physiological effects of mechanical environments. Maintain communication and liaison with related ANSI WGs, relevant US regulatory agencies and relevant ISO standards groups.

Responsible for the following published standards:
