Hand Arm Vibration Awareness Training
Exposure to vibration may not sound particularly dangerous, but the effects are accumulative, progressive, and irreversible. However, they’re also preventable. This Hand Arm Vibration Awareness Training course looks at the effects of hand-arm vibration, who’s at risk, how to recognise the damage it causes, and what can be done to reduce harmful exposure. This course is CPD accredited and IOSH approved.
Regular exposure to vibrations can lead to a number of debilitating conditions; the two most common are Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).
Both conditions can cause numbness, weakness, pain, and, if left untreated, loss of control in a person’s hands; it’s important that you’re able to recognise the early warning signs and know when your exposure exceeds safe limits so you can act before the damage becomes permanent.
Both you and your employer have a responsibility to make sure that you’re safe at work. Your employer is responsible for monitoring and limiting your exposure to vibrations, for making sure that you’re properly trained and have all the information you need to stay safe, and for providing protective equipment. You have a duty to follow their safety instructions and to properly use/ wear any safety equipment they provide. Understand your responsibilities as an employee or employer and avoid HAVS with our Hand/Arm Vibration Awareness Training.
- Learn about and work towards compliance with The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005
- Learn how to recognise the early signs of HAVS and what to do to make sure the damage doesn’t become permanent
