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.
