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)

Please contact us for details.
