Human Vibration

Health and safety compliance

Regular exposure to hand-arm vibration can cause a range of conditions known as Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) which includes vibration white finger and carpal tunnel syndrome. Similarly, whole-body vibration can cause or exacerbate back pain and fatigue.

There is a lack of prescriptive human vibration legislation in many regions, and consequently, companies are often developing their own criteria based on European standards and directives.
