Hand Arm Vibration (HAVS) Monitoring

Having Accurate Measurements Means You Can implement Effective Control Measures to Reduce the Risk – We Can Help

Protecting your workforce from the effects of hand arm and full body vibration can be a hard task to control effectively. The Guidance to The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 highlights areas for controlling exposure such as:
– Working methods which eliminate or reduce exposure
– Choice of work equipment of appropriate ergonomic design
– The provision of auxiliary equipment
– Appropriate maintenance programmes
– The design and layout of workplaces
– Suitable and sufficient information and training for employees
– Limitation of the duration and magnitude of exposure
– Appropriate work schedules with adequate rest periods
– Protection of employees from cold and damp

We provide whole body and hand and arm vibration risk assessments to meet the control of vibration at work regulations 2005. These include:
– Measurement of vibration magnitude in all three axes while applying dominant axis criteria for whole body
– Personal vibration dosimetry based on HSE spread sheet calculators
– Advice on engineering control options for HAVS (hand-arm vibration syndrome) and WBV (whole body vibration)
