How to secure your workers from Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)?

Every year 500+ workers start suffering from HAVS.

Tips to prevent HAVS:

  1. Provide workers with ISO/ASNI Certified AntiVibration Gloves:
  2. Workers should keep fingers, hands and the body warm
  3. For pneumatic tools, workers should keep the cold exhaust air away from their hands and fingers.
  4. Workers should grip tools as lightly as possible consistent with safe working practices.
  5. Workers should prevent continuous exposure by taking frequent short breaks or by using regular task rotation.
  6. Workers should avoid smoking (nicotine constricts the blood vessels which reduces the circulation in the hands and fingers).
