RR590 - Correlation between vibration emission and vibration during real use: Sanders and polishers
This report describes the programme of experimental work that has been carried out for sanders and polishers:
- to assess the BS EN ISO 8662 (non-electric tools) and the BS EN 60745 (electric tools) emission tests for usability and repeatability;
- to assess reproducibility by comparing test results with manufacturers' declared vibration emission values (and verifying in accordance with BS EN 12096);
- to compare vibration emission values with vibration magnitudes measured under real operating conditions; and
- to assess vibration emission data as an indicator of vibration hazard.
This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy.
