Ergonomics is the study of the relationship between people and their work or current environment exposed to them. Ergonomic hazards refer to workplace conditions that pose the risk of injury to the musculoskeletal system of the worker. Besides workplace, a transportation system such a moving train not excluded to produce ergonomically environment disturbance for the passengers who were riding the train. When in public transport, the passengers' convenience should be prioritized. The purpose of this study is to assess exposure of whole body vibration (WBV) to the passenger using direct measurement inside the train cabin and subjective method through the train’s passengers. Besides that, to determine information on risk factors that contribute significantly to discomfort feelings among the train passenger during riding the moving train throughout desired destination. This research study were site base in KTMB commuter train which where the destination is from Tampin to KL Sentral train station. Project scope is focused on variety of ages of woman passengers that commonly sit in the woman coach inside the commuter. 130 questionnaire were distributed during the research. However due to some limitations only 97 questionnaire survey is valid for data interpretation. The tri-axial seat pad accelerometer was connected to a 4-channel VI-400PRO Human Vibration Meter (HVM was placed at the train floor near the seats, gangway, and near door inside the women cabin in KTM Komuter. The results obtain from the research study, WBV exposure level can be determined and the factors that were listed did contribute to existence of discomfort feeling due to environment and vibration exposure to train’s passenger. The reading of vibration data values is related to the International Standard 2631-1 that is used by all to ensure a comfortable ride for passengers. Results of this study can provide awareness to the passengers in order to have less effect of WBV when travelling using komuter train.
