Casella help protect against workplace vibration exposure with the Havex Meter
29 August 2017
It is estimated nearly two million people in the UK are at risk of developing Hand Arm Vibration, commonly referred to as HAV syndrome.
Exposure to vibration in the workplace can lead to serious consequences, causing long-term injury or impairment.
HAV is transmitted into workers’ hands and arms from the use of hand-held power tools and hand guided equipment. High risk sectors include construction, carpentry, ground maintenance, engineering, ship building and ship repairs where workers operate powerful tools, emitting high levels of vibration.
Casella help protect against workplace vibration exposure with the Havex Meter.
This simple to use hand arm vibration meter (HAV) enables you to measure the vibration levels of the tools your employees use to ensure they are not over-exposed to hand arm vibration during their daily routine.
Once measured, the HAVex provides you with the actual level of vibration (as opposed to manufacturers’ figures alone) of a particular tool. This data can be used to calculate actual exposure time into HSE Exposure Points.
