Whole-Body Vibration (WBV) Testing

Whole-Body Vibration

Awareness of whole-body vibration (WBV) and hand-arm vibration (HAV) 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.

What are the effects of WBV?

Regular, long term exposure to high levels of WBV has been linked to the onset of back pain and problems with posture. Lower back issues are a result of degeneration in the spinal vertebra or degeneration of the discs causing compression and pain.
