Under the General Application Legislation 2007, where employees are exposed to mechanical vibration at work a detailed Hand Arm Vibration (HAV) or Whole Body Vibration (WBV) survey should be carried.

The aim of the vibration measurement and control is to help you decide what you need to do to ensure the health and safety of your employees who are exposed to vibration.

The aim of Vibration Measurement and Control

Is to identify where there might be a risk from vibration and who is likely to be affected by it.

To reasonable estimate your employee's exposures, and identify what you need to do to comply with the law, eg. whether vibrations control measures are needed, and if so where and what type.

What procedures and practices you need to review to ensure all employees are no longer at risk from vibration.
