If we mention HAVS you probably have never heard of it before unless it happened to someone you knew. This term stands for Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome. It affects the nerves, joints, muscles, blood vessels or tissues in the hands or forearms. It can also cause numbness in the fingers and hands, poor circulation, and muscular pain.
Workers who consistently use power tools are at a greater risk, especially those who work in the cold.
Using specialized equipment , we can detect risk to workers and help reduce risk of HAVS. For more information, please contact our hygiene team.
