Following the Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005, it is the responsibility of the employer or self-employed persons to ensure an adequate vibration risk assessment has been conducted. In the event that a suitable and sufficient vibration risk assessment has not been carried out, the employer will be liable for any fines or prosecution. Therefore, it is crucial that your business undergoes a thorough vibration risk assessment immediately.

Vibration at Work

  • If vibration in the workplace has not been assessed and controlled appropriately then several hazards can occur. These are:
  • Hand arm vibration (HAV), a condition caused by exposure to vibrating tools or contact with vibrating operations
  • Hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), damaged muscles, joints, circulation and nerves in the hand and arm as a result of HAV
  • Whole body vibration (WBV), a condition caused from sitting, standing or lying on a vibrating surface
  • Vibration white finger (VWF), damage to the circulation caused by HAV.
  • Repeated exposure to vibration can cause serious pain and damage to your employees, resulting in time off work and potential permanent disabilities.
  • To avoid these hazards, it is essential that a competent person carries out a vibration risk assessment. A competent person will be able to identify the risks to workers and provide appropriate advice and training in order to reduce the risks associated with vibration.
