Vibration can be a major concern, as well as an irritant.
Vibration monitoring is relevant with buildings within certain areas, such as industrial areas, high-rise buildings or proximity to railway lines or heavy industry.
In addition, faulty machinery can be the cause of unacceptable vibration levels which need to be assessed and analysed.
Vibration if undetected, can not only cause damage in buildings, it can also affect machinery and therefore, compromise safety and performance at work. Excessive vibration can affect the ability of a person to work effectively, and can affect their health.
Effects of Vibration Monitoring
For a building owner or landlord, the implications of undetected or ignored vibration damage could be severe - both from a business perspective and financially.
The UK has strict guidelines under the ISO Standards for vibration monitoring and analysis, as well as BS6472: 2008, which evaluates existing vibration levels against human response criteria. And punishment for failure to comply can be severe.
