Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) is a condition that’s caused by prolonged use of vibrating tools such as hand held power tools or vibrating compacter. If contact with vibrating tools is a regular part of an employee’s job, it can lead to permanent ill health.

Legal Requirements for HAVS

The HSE recommends a 5 stage approach to handling HAVS. The first stage involves an assessment before an employee begins exposure to vibrating tools. The second stage is a self assessment. The third stage kicks in after 3 years of continuous exposure to vibrating tools. Stage 4 involves formal diagnosis and stage 5 involves optional standardised HAVS tests.

If an employee reports no symptoms of HAVS after 3 years of frequent exposure or if symptoms show up for the first time, the HSE recommends HAVS medicals carried out by HSE accredited medical practitioners.
