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)
