Protecting Against Occupational Vibration Hazards: Comprehensive Workplace Vibration Assessments and Control Recommendations

Mechanical vibrations at work can expose workers to hand-arm vibration (HAV) and/or whole-body vibration (WBV).

Mechanical vibrations can travel down the arm leading to vibration white finger and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Hand-arm vibration (HAV) can result from work practices such as repeated use of pneumatic wrenches, drill presses, orbital sanders and grinders.

Whole-body vibration (WBV) can result from repeated use of forklift trucks or working on vibrating floors that may exist in animal feed mills.

It is important that the type of vibration, its duration and measurement level is assessed to determine the appropriate level of control required to reduce vibration levels to as low as reasonably practicable.

Environmental Efficiency conduct Workplace Vibration Assessments to identify the hazards, assess the risks and recommend appropriate controls.
