Hand Arm Vibration (HAV)

Construct Equip Ltd has from January 2008 adopted the new 'Traffic Light System' for Hand Arm Vibration (HAV) levels on all vibration producing equipment.

The system recommended by the Hire Association Europe indicates the vibration risks of prolonged exposure as follows;

HAV Green Green - HAV below 5m/s2 - Maximum 8 hours per day
HAV Orange Orange - HAV between 5 and 10m/s2 - Maximum 2 hours per day
HAV Red Red - HAV over 10m/s2 - risk must be assessed before use
 
The times relate to Maximum daily limits which should not be exceeded.
However, the new 'Traffic Light System' should not be seen as a substitute for a company's own risk assessment
