European and Dutch legislation define maximum values, i.e. action values and limit values, for whole-body vibration (WBV) and hand-arm vibration (HAV) to which employees may be exposed on a working day. The present research aimed to make an estimation of the daily exposure to WBV and HAV when using agricultural tractors during their normal working activities. In addition, it was investigated to which extent exposure can be influenced actively by the driver by his/her choice of different unevenness of surface, driving speed, tyre inflation pressure, tyre type or tractor type.
