The purpose of this research is to establish a suitable frequency-weighting curve for comfort evaluation with regard to hand-arm vibration using the category judgment method (Guilford, 1954). Many frequency-weighting curves based on biodynamic responses or on epidemiological data for hand-arm vibration exposure have been proposed by many researchers, as shown in Figure 1. It is not clear which frequency-weighting curve is best for establishing relationships between frequency-weighted r.m.s. acceleration and hand-arm vibration comfort. Therefore a psychological experiment has been performed to investigate the effectiveness of the frequency weightings in Figure 1 to predict comfort
