This European Standard is a type test procedure for establishing the values of vibration emission
transmitted to the whole body of operators of industrial trucks under specified conditions. It is not
applicable to hand-arm vibration.
This standard is applicable to powered industrial trucks listed in ISO 5053:1987. The annex A is
applicable for "all-terrain" trucks. It also applies to other powered industrial trucks not covered by
ISO 5053:1987, e.g. variable-reach trucks and "low-lift" "order picking" trucks, etc.
NOTE The standard may however be useful also for existing trucks.
This standard is not applicable to non-stacking "low-lift" straddle carriers (as specified in of
ISO 5053:1987) and stacking "high-lift" straddle carriers (as specified in of ISO 5053:1987).
The test results, however, are not applicable to the determination of whole-body vibration exposure.
