The prevalence of work related musculoskeletal problems with respect to vibration is prominent. This review paper gather recent studies related to objective assessment among work force from all over the world. The three main objectives of this review are: to analyse published objective assessment related to vibration among the work force; to extract and understand in detail the process of each assessment; and to identify whether or not there is a relationship between each variables. Twenty relevant studies were identified and chosen from electronic databases, dating as far back as 2001. “Vibration”, “musculoskeletal problem”, “worker”, and “objective measures” were the keyword search terms for this paper. Past studies demonstrated various purposes and implementation of objective assessment among the work force in evaluating vibration effects. It provides better understanding for the future researchers and industry to deal with vibration issues among work force. Many objective assessment methods among the work force have been applied in the past studies. However, they are still many concerns found in past studies that need to be investigated in the future studies. Therefore, there is a need to perform and apply different objective assessment for evaluating human vibration issues.
