Hand Arm Vibration Meters for assessments to The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations (2005)

Within this category you will find the widest selection of vibration meters for the assessment of Hand Arm Vibration levels within the workplace, in line with The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005.

Aims of the Regulations:

The law requires companies to assess the risk of injury from vibratory tools in the workplace, and the most accurate method of determining operator exposure is by measuring the vibration magnitude of the operator's tools.

All the Hand Arm Vibration meters we are proud to supply here are designed to take quick, simple and accurate tool magnitude measurements. Requiring only one reading per tool, you can very quickly ensure your HAVS Risk assessments are as accurate as possible.

Hand Arm Vibration Notable Levels

  • 2.5 m/s2 A(8) Exposure Action Value (EAV) - Employers should introduce measures to reduce exposure
  • 5.0 m/s2 A(8) Exposure Limit Value (ELV) - This level is the Exposure Limit Value and should not be exceeded.

Vibration Health Surveillance

Another important aspect of controlling vibration exposure in the workplace is vibration health surveillance. Health surveillance for vibration is broken down into tiers, with Tier 1 and Tier 2 involving questionnaires for screening. Tier 3 is a health assessment using industry standardised equipment, you can find vibration health surveillance testing equipment in our Health Surveillance category.
