Hand-Arm Vibration Awareness Course Contents

Exposure to vibration may not sound dangerous, but the effects can be severely disabling if you ignore the symptoms and carry on without being able to recognise when your exposure exceeds a safe level. This concise and effective training programme will help you to recognise the early warning signs, so that something can be done before it’s too late and damage becomes permanent.

Core health and safety training for those involved in Construction and Manufacture, or using heavy machinery.
