As we start getting back into our daily work routines and with winter now well upon us, the colder weather may bring dismay to anyone who struggles with Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), but what is HAVS and what can you do to help yourself and your colleagues who may be at risk?
It's a disorder resulting from prolonged exposure to vibration, specifically to the hands and forearms while using vibrating tools, including hand-held or hand guided power tools and machines.
HAVS can be a significant health risk where powered hand tools are used for significant lengths of time - this is especially so in foundries, construction and heavy fabrication.
