Download our unique HAVS guide for a simple and cost effective approach to managing hand-arm vibration.
Hand-arm vibration (HAV) is vibration transmitted through the hands and arms, such as from power tools, or other work machines, and processes. If your employees have regular exposure to vibration, for half an hour or more in a day, they may be at risk of developing hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS).
The management of risks from hand-arm vibration exposure can appear daunting to many employers. But in reality, it is no more complex in principle than for any other workplace hazard, and just like with those other hazards the law requires employers to:
- identify where there is a risk to be managed; and
- apply good practice in the workplace to eliminate the risk, or reduce it so far as is reasonably practicable.
