Heavy Equipment/Tractor Seating
Back injury can be caused by vibration from a vehicle or machine passing through the seat into the driver’s body through the buttocks. This is Whole Body Vibration (WBV). Regular exposure to whole-body vibration over many months or years can lead to damage and back pain. The longer you are exposed and the higher the level of whole-body vibration, the greater the chances of you suffering a back injury.
Once you begin to suffer back pain, continued exposure to vibration is likely to make the pain worse. Prompt action to protect workers from vibration should stop the damage from getting worse.
You should probably assume that you are at risk if you regularly drive or operate vehicles and machinery for most of the day. Among those most at risk are regular drivers of:
- construction and quarrying vehicles and machinery
- tractors and other agricultural and forestry machinery
- industrial trucks such as lift trucks and straddle carriers
- road haulage vehicles, rail vehicles, buses, etc.
