Most people are unaware that regularly using vibrating tools can do serious damage to your health. You will learn about Hand-arm Vibration Syndrome, including each stage of this debilitating condition and exactly how it impacts your everyday life. You will also learn about Carpal tunnel Syndrome, which can be related to Hand-arm Vibration.
You will learn the skills to keep yourself safe, including learning to refer to a vibration exposure table to check how long it is safe to use a vibrating tool for in any given situation, and how to know when you need to stop using that tool.
You will also learn the responsibilities of your employer in helping to keep you safe from hand-arm exposure, the full range of exposure levels and what the legal limits are, together with the regulations that make your employer accountable for protecting you.
On completion of all of the above sections of the course you will take a 20-question multiple-choice test. You can then get a printed certificate to show you have completed the Hand-arm Vibration Awareness training.
