It is widely known that long-lasting exposure to Hand-arm vibration (HAV) has negative health effects. Although risk assessment and reduction is not that simple. To meet Health and Safety at Work Regulations requirements, Info Marine provides measurements for vibration-emitting hand-held tools such as:
• metal – working equipment: hammers for caulking, clinching, flanging
• construction equipment: breakers, vibrating pokers, drills, hammers
• rotary equipment: cutters, polishers, grinders
• all kind of drills, saws, circular saws etc.
Appropriate measurements are done in line with ISO 20643:2005, ISO 28927 and will help you to establish a relevant vibration magnitude for each tool and evaluate/reduce the risk of HAV exposure.
