Hand-arm Vibration

In July 2019 the HSE published a second edition of their guidance book L140, Hand-arm Vibration.

Hand-arm vibration or HAV is a widespread hazard for employees in many industries and occupations. This second edition of L140 outlines what an employer’s duties are under the Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 as they relate specifically to HAV.

The guidance looks at the employer’s legal obligations to control risks to employees’ health and safety from exposure to HAV and to prevent HAV-related diseases such as hand-arm vibration syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome. It covers the management and control of the risks from HAV and how to protect employees, with practical guidance on risk assessments, controlling vibration exposure and arranging health surveillance.

It has been updated in keeping with changes to related legislation, technical advances and experience. The layout of this revision has been modified to emphasise control of exposure.

Further information is available on the vibration pages of HSE’s website: www.hse.gov.uk/vibration.
