Hand-arm vibration

DPA Technologies offer a comprehensive hand arm vibration management service that includes tool testing and evaluation, risk assessments, work practice optimisation and ongoing training recommendations.

“White Finger Vibration” and “Carpel Tunnel Syndrome” (more commonly known as RSI or Repetitive Strain Injury) can both arise from prolonged exposure to high vibration levels. All hand held power driven machines produce vibration and employers have a duty of care to protect their workforce from hand arm vibration related issues, as well as legal obligations under both UK and European law.

We work with you to formulate a bespoke management package that suits your own Health & Safety requirements and working procedures and that ensures compliance with the European Legislation, “The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005”.

 

We guide you through every stage of an effective hand arm vibration strategy, from conception through implementation to maintenance of the necessary best practices. Our service includes a free on-site survey undertaken by one of our trained consultants, who will give advice on potential areas of risk. Following this, a full vibration analysis is performed and a professional report presented stating the findings and our recommendations.

 

All DPA testing is carried out in accordance with British Standard EN ISO 5349-2:2002 by our highly knowledgable team of specialist consultants who can advise on all aspects of hand arm vibration prevention.
