Up-To-Date HAVS Information

The biggest HAVS News will normally come as a result of a HSE prosecution for not adhering to the Control of Vibration at Work 2005 regulations.

These regulations state that all businesses must ensure that the risks from vibration are controlled. They must also provide information, instruction and training to employees on the risk and the actions being taken to control risk. Plus, they should provide suitable health surveillance for anyone who is identified as at risk from the effects of vibration exposure.

The HSE will prosecute companies that do not operate within these regulations. If convicted, companies will be liable for fines, legal costs and compensation claims.
