Event description
Workshop will provide hands-on experience in the measurement and interpretation of Hand-Arm Vibration (HAV) and Whole-Body Vibration (WBV).

About this Event

This workshop will provide hands-on experience in the measurement and interpretation of Hand-Arm Vibration (HAV) and Whole-Body Vibration (WBV) using the Larson Davis HVM200 human vibration measurement system with reference to ISO Standards on HAV (ISO 5349) and WBV (ISO 2631). Participants will learn about health effects of vibration exposure, measurement system components, ISO requirements for occupational HAV and WBV measurement, data handling and exposure assessment, and practical interpretation of results. Hands-on experience will involve collecting and analyzing HAV powered hand tool operation and WBV during vehicle operation.

To optimize the practical, hands-on intent of this workshop, pre-reading of summary notes will be required to establish a common understanding of core principles and technical language. Additional options for more detailed background will be provided. Pre-reading notes will summarize and introduce participants to basic principles of vibration, health effects, ISO 5349 (HAV) requirements, ISO 2631-1 (WBV) requirements, exposure assessment and thresholds, and practical recommendations to minimize risk associated with HAV and WBV exposure.
