Detect and avoid vibration damage and meet the requirements of the Employment Regulations specified in the EU Physical Agents Directives.
There are more than 25 million people in the EU who are exposed to potentially hazardous vibration in their daily work. Many of these do have some kind of vibration related medical problems. It is possible to avoid or cure the majority of these problems with adequate preventive measures.
VibroSense Dynamics offers a system that detects early changes in the sensibility of hands and fingers before these have developed into a permanent vibration injury. Thus, with a long-term commitment, you can both protect your staff while avoiding costly and time-consuming workplace inspections.
There are a number of affected industries, such as:
- Construction and demolition
- Road construction/maintenance
- Podiatry and dentistry
- Vehicle repair and tire shops
- Park-and municipal facilities
- Forestry and mining.
The Directives require that employers take preventive measures and offer relevant medical examinations for all personnel exposed to vibrations. Note that small and rapid vibrations can be as dangerous as vibrations from large and heavy tools or machinery.
