Introduction

The Control of Vibration at Work
Regulations 2005 is designed to protect workers from injury
resulting form exposure to hand-arm vibration. To manage the risks
from hand-arm vibration exposure and to comply with the regulations
you will need to assess, control and monitor exposures, you will
also need to ensure that workers understand the risks and have any
necessary training. If workers are at risk you will also need a
health surveillance programme to monitor any progression of injury
and to provide feedback on the effectiveness of your exposure
controls. This course provides an overview of your duties under
Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 and practical
guidance on how you can control and manage hand-arm vibration risks
in your workplace.
