HAVS

HAVS (hand arm vibration syndrome) assessments are used to determine if employees have physical health symptoms secondary to working with hand held vibrating tools or hand-fed vibration equipment.

Where regular assessments are not completed there is a risk of damage to the nerves and circulation which can progress to become permanent and debilitating – thereby increasing employer liability, litigation costs and business insurance premiums.

We offer tier 1 to 4 health surveillance for HAVS according to the HSE guidelines, and can refer clients to a number of different centres where tier 5 screening is required.  Visit the HSE website for further details.

All our physicians and our advisors have completed approved HAVS training courses.
