A10.1 Introduction

Vibration from any activity shall comply with criteria for both human exposure (A10.2) and vibration in structures (A10.3).

A10.2 Human Exposure
The vibration criteria for human exposure are determined by: a) Vibration from any activity, measured at or within the boundary of any other site within the Environment, shall not exceed the level specified in Table A10.2. Vibration from any activity measured at or within the boundary of any site within another Environment, shall not exceed the lesser of the two relevant levels specified in Table A10.2.
