Hand-Arm Vibration Risk Assessments

Where there are power tools, there is normally vibration and prolonged exposure can cause significant health effects. Global OHS offer hand-arm vibration risk assessments services to ensure that any issues are identified early and dealt with appropriately.

Why do I need hand-arm vibration risk assessments?

Normally this would affect Wood workers, Ground workers, Estates staff and some drivers.

Hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) is a widespread condition in many industries and occupations. HAV exposure at work can arise from the use of hand-held power tools, hand-guided machinery and hand-fed machines (such as pedestal grinders).
