Manage the risks and prevent hand-arm vibration syndrome

Hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) can be caused by using hand-held power tools for prolonged periods of time.

It is a painful, disabling disease of the hands affecting blood vessels, nerves, and joints.

Take a look at the HSE's HAVS website to find out what you need to do to prevent this painful disease.

It includes key messages and resources, including the hand-arm vibration calculator.

HSE's guidance book Hand-arm vibration (L140) covers the management and control the risks from exposure and how to protect employees, which is available here.
