Our vibration surveys offer practical results, with our Ergokinetics software, which are immediately actionable on presentation of our reports. Our reports reference the following international best practice standards, the European Physical Agents (Vibration) Directive (2002/44/EC), ISO 2631-2:2003.
Hand-arm vibration (HAV) comes from the use of hand-held power tools and is the cause of significant ill health (painful and disabling disorders of the blood vessels, nerves and joints). These disorders are also covered in South Africa by Circular Instruction 180.
Whole-body vibration (WBV) is transmitted through the seat or feet of employees who drive mobile machines, or other work vehicles, over rough and uneven surfaces as a main part of their job. Large shocks and jolts may cause health risks including back-pain.
