Minimising Operator Hand Arm Vibration Exposure
ATA were approached by a large ship building company, who employ hundreds of workers. Working in conjunction with our local distribution partner we were able to offer technical support and vibration consultancy in relation to the control of Hand Arm Vibration within the workplace.
The ship building company were in discussions with OSHA with regards to the safety of their large workforce, in particular reducing the operators risk to Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome. With an extensive workforce, all using tools that could increase the operator risk to developing H.A.V.S, it was apparent that the ship builder needed to actively seek assistance in order to help minimise the operator risk to vibration exposure.
