The effects of Hand Arm Vibration can be painful, permanent and debilitating. They include Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), Carpel Tunnel, Vibration White Finger and more. You can find out more about these HAVs conditions here.

The regulations introduce action and limit values for hand-arm vibration:

  • Exposure action value of 2.5 m/s2 A(8) at which level employers should introduce technical and organisational measures to reduce exposure.
  • Exposure limit value of 5.0 m/s2 A(8) which should not be exceeded.
