Reduce risk from exposure to vibration

Control Measure Knowledge

The assessment of the risk to health created by vibration at the workplace is a legal requirement and the regulations establish exposure limit values and action values. Preplanning should consider the magnitude, type and duration of exposure, manufacturer’s information and working conditions such as low temperatures.

In a dynamic operational environment a hierarchy of control approach should be adopted to minimise risk from hand-arm and whole-body vibration.
