The industry of the tractor manufacturing and their equipment is constantly developing technically and in the user safety and comfort realm. However, the problem of the vibrations, which could negatively influence the user’s health, has not been resolved. The review of the literature shows that this topic is not popular among scientists. The second aspect is the potential exposure of a driver to the air pollutants inside the tractor’s cabin. All of them, with long-term stay inside a tractor may pose threat to the health and life of farmers. In the paper, the results of investigation of vibration in a chosen tractor working in real (operating) conditions were presented. The main aim of the researches was to evaluate the level of driver’s exposure to the vibrations generated by the working tractor, especially in the range of the resonant frequency with human organs and identifying places with better vibration damping systems should be implemented. In addition, during the tests micro atmosphere inside the tractor cabin was analyzed. The research focused on the presence of hydrocarbons from volatile organic compounds group (which are carcinogenic and mutagenic) and evaluated the level of driver’s exposure to such pollutants.

Key words: Vibration, tractor, indoor air quality, volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
