In order to protect from occupational disease related to vibrations, the European Directive2002/44/CE defines alert and action limits which trigger an action on the vibrations received by the workers. Since the 6th July 2010, companies have been compelled to assess vibration doses thanks to a vibration dosimeter. LNE has been willing to develop its activities in accelerometry, LNE developed the calibration of vibration dosimeter service following standard ISO 8041 “Human Response to vibration / measuring instrumentation”. This article describes the requirements of the European Directive 2002/44/CE, the standard ISO 8041 and the calibration bench developed and accredited by COFRAC.
