IMCA’s Be prepared to work safely series: Hand-arm vibration

Part of the ‘Be prepared to work safely’ series of video shorts and pocket cards from IMCA.

Whenever you use hand-held powered work equipment, vibration can affect your hands and arms. Prolonged exposure to vibration can cause permanent changes to nerves, blood vessels, muscles and joints and can lead to hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), which can be severely disabling.
