Health and Safety Training - Half Day Hand Arm Vibration Training Course

This course ensures that employees are adequately trained in accordance with The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005. The training includes a simple explanation on the nature of vibration, how it can cause damage, how levels can be reduced and health risks minimised.

Who should attend?
In order to comply with The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005, an employer must provide training to any employee who may be exposed to significant levels (i.e. above the Exposure Action Value of 2.5m/s²). The course is also recommended to managers who have specific responsibilities regarding health and safety, and supervisors who are required to enforce the necessary control measures.

Aims and objectives of the course:
To highlight the potential harm from vibration in the workplace and to pass on good practices to reduce the risk of hand-arm vibration syndrome. The course is particularly relevant for operators of hand operated power tools (e.g. hammer-drills,) or for those whose work involves holding materials being processed by machines such as pedestal grinders.

At the end of the course delegates will:

  • Appreciate the key legislation & guidance covering HAVS in the workplace including the implications and requirements of the impending The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 which implement the physical Agents (vibration) Directive (2002/44/EC).
  • To understand the symptoms and effects of excessive vibration.
  • Appreciate the risks associated with using vibrating tools.
  • To understand the techniques to adopt to reduce risk associated with noise and vibration.
  • Understand employers and employees duties.
