Regular exposure to vibrations from handheld tools or vibrating equipment can lead to a range of health issues and irreversible damage to hands, arms, and the back. It’s estimated that hand-arm vibration-related absences cost the UK up to 300,000 working days annually, with noise-related concerns also impacting employee health.

One critical concern is Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), a chronic pain condition resulting from frequent or prolonged use of vibrating power tools. This condition includes ailments like carpal tunnel syndrome and vibration white finger (VWF), affecting blood vessels, nerves, and joints. Employers who neglect employee health in this regard risk substantial fines.

Since 2015, the UK has incurred over £5 million in fines due to this often overlooked issue. Pulsar Instruments is not only dedicated to raising awareness through their seminars but also to emphasising the significance of these health risks to industry professionals and employers.
