Workplace Vibration Monitoring Vibration Meters
Workplace vibrations are categorised into two categories, whole-body vibration (WBV) and hand-arm vibration (HAV). Workers exposed to high vibration levels as a result of using hand-held power tools or as a result of operating machinery or vehicles can result in a range of serious health problems from back pain, damage to nerves, aggravation to existing injuries and more.
Safe Work Australia provides a range of guidance materials for the measuring and risk management of exposure to WBV and HAV in the workplace.
