Vibration & Noise
WHC Hire Services are trained to the IOSH accredited Noise at Work, Risk Assessment and Management Standard
We carry out Vibration and Noise testing for a wide variety of customers from all types of industries with many applications i.e. construction, manufacturing, horticulture etc.
Vibration from tools such as breakers, compaction plates, angle grinders, strimmers,chainsaws etc is transmitted straight into the hands through the handles.
WHC Hire Services has now had in place since July 2002 its Hand Arm Vibration Testing Equipment and Facilities. With this we test our Hand Arm Vibration equipment, download the information on to our data base and produce data reports on the safe working times and risks posed by the equipment.
WHOLE BODY VIBRATION
Whole body vibration is concerned with cases where the human body is subject to vibration via: feet, buttocks, back, and seat. (standing or seated employees)
The effects of direct vibration on the body can be serious. High levels of periodic, random or transient vibration can cause: degraded health,
Whole body vibration can be caused by the movement of the wheels of a tracked vehicle or mobile machine crossing an uneven surface, or while using mobile machines to excavate holes or trenches in the ground or to load materials such as sand / gravel into lorries.
As of July 2005 Whole Body Vibration Testing has also become part of WHC Hire Services Health and Safety Policy as a new directive is being released by the HSE in 2010. Company’s will have to start thinking about doing risk assessments on their Plant
