What is HAV and what are its affects?

HAV (Hand & Arm Vibration) is vibration transmitted from a work process into the workers hands and arms. It can be caused by operating hand-held power tools, hand-guided equipment, or by holding materials being processed by machines.

There are many different types of equipment and hand-held power tools that can place workers at increased risk of developing Hand and Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS). HAVS is the medical term for symptoms caused by vibration damages that may occur in the fingers, hands and arms when working with vibrating tools or machinery.

As well as specific diseases such as a white finger (Raynaud's Syndrome), Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, and tendinitis, HAVS has adverse circulatory and neural effects in the fingers. The signs and symptoms include numbness, pain, and blanching (turning pale and ashen).

Some of the tools capable of causing HAVS can be seen below:

How to mitigate the risks of hand & arm vibrations?

Sysco Environmental Hand and Arm Vibration assessment programs will provide you with the necessary information, plans and means to reduce and control hand and arm vibration, and to adequately protect your employees.

The vibration risk to your employees can be effectively controlled by implementation of our hand & arm vibration program which includes:

As a result of the HAV survey, the average hand and arm vibration magnitudes can be used to calculate daily exposure times. From this, we can then advise on how best to control the levels of exposure and how to safely deal with vibration issues in the workplace.

Results for each tool will be compared to the Exposure Action Value (EAV) and the Exposure Limit Value (ELV), and we will help employers develop and implement strategies that will reduce hand and arm vibration levels and exposures.
