Calculate your daily hand-arm vibration exposure

Calculate your daily hand-arm vibration Exposure A(8), multiple tools:

For each tool, enter the acceleration level (see data sheet) and the daily work time (hours, minutes). Estimated daily vibration exposure appears in the box below.
TOOL ACCELERATION (m/s²) DAILY WORK TIME
Hours Minutes

Calculated hand arm vibration exposure A(8)= 0.00 m/s²

Calculate the exposure duration, one tool for a requested A(8) dose:

Enter the acceleration level for the tool (see data sheet) and a requested daily hand-arm vibration exposure. The box below shows for how long time you can work with the tool until you reach the specified daily exposure dose.
TOOL ACCELERATION (m/s²) Requested daily vibration exposure, A(8) (m/s²)

Calculated exposure duration for the requested A(8) dose= 0h 0min

Hand-arm vibration exposure limits
stated in the EU physical agent directive (vibration) 2002/44/EC

Action value: 2,5 m/s²
The employer shall establish and implement programme of measures intended to reduce to a minimum exposure to mechanical vibration, if the Action value is exceeded.

Limit value: 5,0 m/s²
In any event, workers shall not be exposed above the exposure limit value.

Remember to print the result for future comparison.
