Workers can be exposed to Vibration in many different industries including manufacturing, mining, agriculture, trades and construction costing millions in workers' compensation payouts and the effects of Vibration in the workplace can be permanently disabling, such as white finger, carpet tunnel sydnrome, sensory nerve damage, muscle and joint damage and occupational overuse syndrome. The two main types of vibration are; whole-body vibration (WBV) and hand-arm vibration (HAV). The most common occurence of exposure happens when workers operate handheld power tools or hand guided machinery but can also be affected by driving or travelling in vehicles.
The longer the worker is exposed to whole body vibration (WBV), the higher the risk of health problems.
Cirrus Research has just launched their new Vibration Meter; RevoTM Vibration Meter for Hand-Arm, Whole-Body and Machinery Vibration Monitoring.
