Workplace Hand-Arm Vibration Assessment

Typically an assessment would include the following.

  • At your workplace we would take vibration measurements of tools and machinery used by employees.
  • Based on the levels measured and the amount of time employees are exposed to them, determine whether employees are at risk according to the Regulations.
  • If necessary, for employees at risk, make recommendations on material and personnel measures to reduce vibration levels and whether employees need health surveillance.
  • Document all this in a report which can inform your action plan to protect your employees and control vibration at work.
