About Hand Arm Vibration (HAVS) Training

Vibration is a widespread hazard affecting people in many professions and industries. Continued exposure to HAV through the use of vibrating tools and equipment can lead to debilitating and often irreversible health problems. These are often known as Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome or HAVS.

The responsibility falls on employers to minimise the risk of HAVS in the workplace. This includes providing sufficient information, instruction, and training to anyone that may be exposed. This hand-arm vibration awareness training supports meeting these legal duties.

Why Is Hand Arm Vibration (HAVS) Training Important?

Around two million people are at risk of vibration exposure according to the Health and Safety Executive. While the illness caused by vibration may take 5-10 years to develop, once they have developed they are irreversible.

The associated health risks include:

  • White finger – when blood stops flowing to the fingers
  • Nerve damage
  • Bone and joint damage
  • Muscle weakening
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

The effects of these illnesses are both physically and psychologically challenging. They can cause pain, itching and loss of feeling in the hands. Many experience the loss of fine motor skills and reduced strength and grip. This leaves them unable to use their hands as they once did.

Employers of anyone that may be exposed to vibration have a legal and moral duty to protect them from the risk. They must also protect themselves from the financial liability of claims and fines for breaches in safety law.
