It's actually not a dumb question. The answer is a definite yes. I don't know the magnitude of the vibrations you're dealing with - but I would recommend you put some sort of foam rubber or anything you can think of to effectively isolate your iMac from that kind of vibration until they're done working out there. If it's vibrating enough that you notice it shaking your computer - it can cause damage. Your desktop wasn't designed to design a vibration environment, so I would definitely take a few precautions.

When we design systems for the military - there is a lot of additional design activity that goes into handling vibrations and then qualifying those systems to the MIL-STD. Your iMac wasn't designed with vibration in mind - which is good. It means you can afford it.
