Uncertainty seems to exist, in most part fuelled by some recently launched products claiming to offer a “magic wand” type solution to Hand Arm Vibration Measurement regarding the legally compliant vibration exposure monitoring.
Newly created HSE Guidance entitled “Questions about Vibration Exposure Monitoring” asks one simple question.
Do Hand Arm Vibration Measurements need to be taken “on the tool”
Hand Arm Vibration Measurements should be made with the tranducer (accelerometer ) firmly attached to the vibrating surface.
It goes on to state “There is currently no wrist or glove mounted device which measures vibration suitable for use in a vibration risk assessment”
This is not new information and The Control of Vibration at work Regulations 2005 clearly state that vibration measurement must take place in accordance with ISO 5349 2001 Parts 1 &2
Curotec Team pride ourselves in promoting the worlds only Hand Arm and whole Body Vibration aid in strict compliance with The current Guidance and Legislation and our clients can be completely assured that our approach to eliminating the risk or reducing it to the lowest possible levels will always come ahead of simply selling a non compliant “magic wand “ type product.

Managing Hand Arm Vibration and ignoring Whole Body Vibration is not complying with the Law!
