Investigating the utility of wrist worn vibration monitoring in the effective management of exposure to dangerous vibrations within the work place

Abstract

This paper seeks to demonstrate the validity of vibration data acquired from a personal wrist worn vibration monitor in assessing exposure to hazardous Hand Arm Vibration. The paper also seeks to define the value that data from continuous monitoring can have in forming an effective risk management process within the work place. Illustrated within this paper are some of the shortcomings arising from over reliance on single point sample measurements and the deviation between the perceived exposure calculated from a single point measurement and the reality of true exposure given the variability across time, task and a large cohort of individuals.

“Before the HAVmeter, we relied on manual input, with a guy basically using his memory at the end of the day for the time that he has spent using vibratory tools. With the HAVmeter, we have an accurate, user friendly piece of kit which allows us to manage HAV more easily. It really is a Health and Safety Management tool. We have been able to make major savings through cutting out administrative costs.”
