Hand-Arm Vibration

Workers using hand-held power tools are at series risk of HAVS

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has recently launched a series of prosecutions against employers for failing to ensure that adequate measures were taken to minimise workers’ exposure to vibration and thus putting them at risk of developing hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS).

By law employers, must assess and identify measures to remove or reduce risks from exposure to hand-arm vibration and ensure that the correct control measures are in place and information, training and health surveillance are provided.  

How our experts can help:

  • Provide support to help meet compliance regulations.
  • Measure vibration and undertake risk assessments.
  • Carry out health surveillance on workers at risk.
  • Advise to control vibration exposure.
  • Prepare policies, procedures to manage safely, and vibration impacts.
  • Provide staff awareness training
