Hand-Arm Vibration Testing (HAV)
Health and safety is at the core of everything we stand for at Southern Power Tools. With an estimated 2 million workers at risk of Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome, the industry has to take the risks of HAVS seriously.
We offer specialist advice, support and training to ensure compliance with health and safety legislation.
We pay particular attention to this important industry-wide advice around HAV from the Health and Safety Executive and seamlessly guide you through the process to meet the requirements.
UK legal obligations
The law states that as an employer must “assess and identify measures to eliminate or reduce risks from exposure to hand-arm vibration so that you can protect your employees from risks to their health.” The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 also stipulate that “Where the risks are low, the actions you take may be simple and inexpensive, but where the risks are high, you should manage them using a prioritised action plan to control exposure to hand-arm vibration.”
The benefits of HAV Testing with Southern Power Tools
Our specialists are able to carry out checks on-site or at our in-house workshops. For companies with larger tool fleets we can offer a site survey to ascertain the best and most economical way to undertake the testing.
We offer a bespoke tagging service which includes the relevant information for your engineer, including HAV level (this is for new products using manufacturers’ data), PPH (points per hour) and usage times to both (EAV & ELV). The tags can be branded with your own logo and any other additional information required.
