Risk Assessment Form for Hand Arm Vibration

Hand Arm Vibration Risk Assessment

HS.RA.HAV.02

Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), caused by over use of tools that vibrate while they are used can be a debilitating medical problem. The longer a worker is exposed to vibrating tools, the greater the risk of developing HAVS. The likelihood of developing HAVS can be increased by differences in characteristics of the tool or the way it is used.

The first step in combatting exposure to HAV is to carry out a risk assessment. This Risk Assessment Form has been professionally written to help you assess the risks to your employees. Used in conjunction with the Guidance Notes it can assist you in limiting their exposure to excessive vibration.
