HAVS (Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome)
HAVS (hand-arm vibration syndrome) assessments are used to determine if employees have physical health symptoms secondary to working with hand-held vibrating tools or hand-fed vibration equipment.
Where regular assessments are not completed there is a risk of damage to the nerves and circulation which can progress to become permanent and debilitating – thereby increasing employer liability, litigation costs, and business insurance premiums.
We offer tier 1 to 4 health surveillance for HAVS according to the HSE guidelines and can refer clients to a number of different centres where tier 5 screening is required. Visit the HSE website for further details.
All our physicians and our advisors have completed approved HAVS training courses.
