Awareness of hand-arm vibration (HAV) and whole-body vibration (WBV) has significantly increased in recent times with epidemiological studies linking prolonged exposures with various health disorders.
The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations came into force in 2005. The regulations apply to the exposure in the workplace for hand-arm vibration and whole-body vibration.
Hand-arm vibration is caused by the use of hand held or hand guided vibrating tools, or holding the work-piece to a grinding wheel/belt.
