HAVS White Paper

What are the main considerations that the Australian Construction Industry needs to be aware of, as workers continue to be exposed to harmful levels of hand-arm vibration? The Construction Industry, along with Mining, Building, Engineering and any other industry where manual tasks involve the use of hand-held power tools, are considered a high risk to hand-arm vibration exposure. There are currently no regulations for the maximum levels of daily vibration exposure in Australia, which poses a serious threat to the health and safety of our workers, not made aware of the future health problems they may be developing. This white paper will highlight and address some of the issues related to Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), the long-term health-related effects and factors affecting the exposure to HAVS. It will also include statistics and legislation taken from the Health and Safety Executive UK (HSE) and other bodies which provided accurate and measurable advice to employers, protecting workers and preventing serious disease or illness as a result of dangerous hand-arm vibration exposure.
