Vibration in the workplace is one of the most common occupational health and safety risks. Having the right tools to measure and monitor vibration is essential.
Noise and vibration pose very significant risks to people at work, especially if they’re not adequately protected with quiet/smooth tools or the correct level of personal protective equipment.
But what are the risks associated with exposure to excessive noise and vibration levels? What impact can noise and vibration have on people’s health?
For more than 50 years, we’ve been in the business of helping organisations across the world meet their legal and moral obligations to minimise the health effects of noise vibration on their employees.
