Vibration Exposure Management

Workers can be exposed to harmful vibration levels during the operation of power tools, machinery, vehicles and from other workplace sources. Exposure to whole-body vibration is associated with back pain, while hand-arm vibration can affect circulation and joints.

The latest Australian Standard for whole-body vibration (AS 2670-2001) uses new methods to assess damaging jolts and jars. More information on vibration can be found on our useful links page.

Our principal consultant is recognised as a leading expert in vibration exposure assessment and management in Australia with more than 15 years of experience in this field. He is co-author of the publication "Bad Vibrations-A Handbook on Whole-Body Vibration Exposure in Mining", which was produced for the NSW Joint Coal Board. Our consultants have vast experience having conducted many vibration exposure assessments throughout Australia.
