Technical supervision civil servants and industrial medicine practitioners are also welcome. The organizer issues an appeal to representatives of public authorities and academic institutions e.g. those for industrial sectors of motor vehicles, aviation, rail transport and water craft, mechanical engineering, agriculture, forestry and construction industry. The conference will also supply new input and information for experts from the comfort analysis and assessment ﬁelds as well as for experimental and numerical NVH specialists. Managerial staff who is supervising the guidelines of the Noise and Vibration Health and Safety ordinances at the workplace is also particularly addressed. Foreword People are exposed to signiﬁcant mechanical vibrations in their working environment or in the daily trafﬁc situation. Consequential negative effects on health, performance and comfort can appear. The wide range of impacts from human vibrations, affecting almost all branches of industry, requires an interdisciplinary approach to the pro- blem. For investigating health and comfort aspects innovative methods such as the numerical simulation and the use of dummies open up new perspectives and provide completely new approaches for the develop- ment and evaluation of vibration reduction measures for whole-body and hand-arm-vibrations. In the ﬁeld of occupational safety , the “Ordinance on the protection of workers against the risks arising from exposure to noise and vibrations” implementing the “Directive 2002/44/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council” deﬁnes the requirements for employers. According to that, in addition to the risk assessment preventive measures are to be implemented in dependence of the reaching or exceeding of the exposure action or exposure limit values respectively. This includes from the principle of technical minimization via the deter- mination of the vibrational loads at workplaces, the instruction of the parties involved through to the implementation of a vibration reduction program and preventive occupational medical care. Goal of the conference is to give a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in the areas of concern mentioned and to explain their signiﬁ- cance by practical examples.
