Excessive vibrations can be linked to a variety of ill health effects such as vibration white finger, disabling hand-arm symptoms and back issues. A Risk Assessment is needed when any employee is likely to be exposed to daily hand-arm or whole-body levels at or above the A8 exposure action value.
We can help you:
We specialise in advising companies on compliance with The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations.
Hand Arm Vibration Assessment
We undertake assessments with fully calibrated equipment and follow the following guidance:
We take measurements from the handle of the vibrating tool, or from the plant/equipment. These are used, along with the time that hands/body are exposed to the measured vibration.
Our Chartered Health & Safety professionals have undergone additional training including the Institute of Acoustics Diploma. This ensures both practical advice and a high level of competence.
